Knowing Jesus as Crucified
In John 19, we arrive at the heart of the Christian faith, the death and resurrection of Jesus. We are familiar with the details of Jesus’ death, but we want to consider this event without becoming numb to it. We discover that God is in control in John 19 and we talk about why God allows (and even plans) these terrible events to happen to His Son. We are encourage to cherish and cling to the cross of Christ.

    Knowing Jesus as Rejected
    In John 18, it seems that everything that could go wrong does go wrong. Everyone who could turn against Jesus turns against Him. We also see how He is perfectly in control and He is not shocked by anything. We discover four people who reject Him and how they represent four common types of rejection. We also discover how Jesus responds to the rejection and why this is significant for us.

As we look at the five main petitions in His prayer, we are encouraged because we also discover what Jesus is most likely praying for us right now as He intercedes for us as our priest.
