Jesus a man of courage and obedience

The Mineral Wells Wednesday Bible Study Club met on Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2013.  

Fourteen members met in the home of Mrs. Elaine Summers to continue the study of the Gospel of John.

John Chapter 18 continues with the story of Jesus and his journey to the cross.

In the 17th chapter of John he prepares his disciples to continue the work without him.

After the last supper in the upper room Jesus and his disciples walk to the Garden of Gethsemane. Judas followed Jesus to the garden, but Judas brought a large contingent of temple police and Roman soldiers to arrest Jesus.

Jesus identified himself as the “Jesus of Nazareth” for whom they were looking: “I am he.”

Jesus insisted he was the man they wanted and insisted the soldiers let his disciples leave.  

This passage shows the courage with which Jesus boldly identified himself to the soldiers.

When these soldiers first encountered Jesus they were overwhelmed by his authority as they fell down in his presence. Jesus knew that he was about to die and that it was God’s plan – he would fulfill the glory of God.

Jesus’ protective love is expressed by his insistence that he is the one the soldiers are looking for; they must let his disciples leave.  

Jesus was completely obedient to God: “Am I not to drink the cup that the Father has given me?”  

All the disciples fled from Jesus except Peter and an unnamed disciple. These two followed Jesus to the home of the high priest, Caiaphus.

The unnamed disciple appears to be known by the household and, at his invitation, Peter entered in from the courtyard.  

Three times in this setting Peter is asked if he is not one of the disciples – and three times Peter denied that he was one of Jesus’ disciples.

  • jail.tif Attorney suits up in jailhouse orange for Lent

    In the 40-day season of self-denial called Lent, some Christians give up daily comforts such as chocolate, soda or Facebook. Attorney Kent McKeever felt called to try something a little more uncomfortable.

     

    McKeever, a youth minister and Mission Waco legal advocate, is dressing each day head to toe in orange jailhouse scrubs in solidarity with the imprisoned and returning ex-cons shunned by society.
