Sermon Notes
The King on Trial ~ John 18:1-19:16

  • The setting:
    • One of Jesus’ closest companions for 3 years betrayed him and came with an army (18:1-5)
    • The leader of Jesus’ apostles first weakly defended him and then denied him while the others scattered or hid (18:10-27)
    • The religious leaders accused him and sought his death (18:12-19:16)
    • The governor wanted to release him but broke under political pressure (19:12-16)
    • Yet, Jesus was firmly in control of the situation, carrying out the Father’s plan of salvation
  • What we learn about Jesus and what that means for us:
    • Jesus is God, the Great I Am; so we worship him (18:4-8)
    • Jesus is King and through him we belong to a greater Kingdom; so we seek to expand his Kingdom (18:33-38)
    • Jesus is God’s Son; so we obey him and rest in his authority (19:7-11)
