This week's broadcast is the sermon I gave at Church of the Messiah.
"Betrayal and Denial"
Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus
Jesus Faces Annas and Caiaphas12 So the band of soldiers and their captain and the officers of the Jews[d] arrested Jesus and bound him. 13 First they led him to Annas, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year. 14 It was Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it would be expedient that one man should die for the people.
Peter Denies Jesus15 Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Since that disciple was known to the high priest, he entered with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest, 16 but Peter stood outside at the door. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to the servant girl who kept watch at the door, and brought Peter in. 17 The servant girl at the door said to Peter, “You also are not one of this man's disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.”
Spiritual power is real, because the God revealed by Jesus is real.
God’s grace and mercy are very real, so failure, betrayal, denial, and abandonment do not have to be final.
Because Jesus loves you, your cup, He drank.
Because Jesus loves you, His cup, He prepared for you.
