November 25, Reading 3 – John 18:1-27


Audio, Visual

SAA Notes

John highlights the fact that Jesus was brought to Annas first. Annas could not find one charge to bring against the Christ. This is important! The priest finds no blemish in the sacrifice! This is important testimony to who Jesus is and shows what He has come to do.

SJA Notes

* God of grace and mercy, please sanctify us today in the truth.

“When Jesus said to them, ‘I am he,’ they drew back and fell to the ground.”

Every knee will bow before the King.

Who do we seek?

We seek Jesus too, to know Him and love Him as He loves us.

These men sought to capture Jesus, and eventually to kill Him.

But they fell before the King too.

We see here a little foreshadow of what will come in full on the last day.

All will bow before the King.

* Father God,

May we bow in humble adoration before You this day.

We acknowledge Your rule over our lives, Your love for us, Your kindness and grace and mercy.

Please may those around us turn from their sin and seek Your mercy.
