Reflections on the Crucifixion – John 18

  • Jesus looked out for his disciples during his arrest. He asked that they be let go. He was not seeking to have them suffer with him.
  • Jesus rebuked Peter very strongly when he tried to defend him. He instead stated that he must drink the cup his father had given him, even though it was so terrible a cup (18:11). He was doing his father’s will at any cost.
  • Jesus was treated like a dangerous criminal. He was arrested at night, with soldiers and weapons and then bound and taken from one place to another.
  • The disciple that went to the high priests’ house with Jesus (John?) was known by (or to) the high priest (18:15).
  • Jesus was beaten, spit upon, mocked and insulted, while being blindfolded, of course.
