The Betrayal in the Garden, Jesus’ Trials

Wednesday March 27, 2019

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

The private ministry of Jesus with His disciples that took place in the upper room where they ate the Last Supper has now ended. The public drama of Jesus’ betrayal, arrest, religious and civil trials takes place in chapter 18. The redemption of lost humanity is set in motion and will culminate in the pursuing chapters. Going forward, we will encounter the worst of humanity and God will respond by giving His very best. The Apostle Paul said it well, “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Rom. 5:20).
