The Arrest & Trial of Jesus

When a band of soldiers arrive at the garden of Gethsemane seeking to arrest Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus turns to them and says, “I am he.” In fact, this short phrase appears three times during this part of the narrative, which means that John is placing special emphasis on these words. So why are they significant, and what effect do they end up having upon the hearers? On this episode the hosts arrive at chapter 18 in their continuing study of the Gospel of John as Jesus is arrested and placed on trial by Israel’s chief priests.

My Kingdom Is Not of This World

When Jesus was brought before Pilate, he was essentially accused of being a kind of rival king, a usurper to the throne. But when asked, he said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” What are the implications of this statement for us as Christians? For example, should believers separate themselves from the world? The hosts will also discuss the significance of Pilate’s words when he said, “Behold the man,” as he presented Jesus to the crowd wearing a purple robe and a crown of thorns.

The Significance of Golgotha

In John 19 we’re told that Pilate delivered Jesus over to the chief priests who led him out of the city to the place of crucifixion. If the chief priests were basically in charge at this point, where might they have taken Jesus? The book of Hebrews gives us a hint when it says that Jesus suffered “outside the camp” (13:12), which turns out to be a specific location mentioned in the Old Testament as well as in a variety of second Temple sources. On this episode the hosts will discuss the meaning and significance of Golgotha in our continuing series through the Gospel of John.

Naked, Ashamed, Despised, & Rejected

What is significant about the fact that Christ’s garments were divided up among the soldiers, or that he experienced thirst while suffering in our place on the cross? Why does John seem to emphasize the fact that blood and water flowed when a soldier pierced his side? On this program Shane Rosenthal will discuss these and other questions with Justin Holcomb, author of Rid of My Disgrace, as they walk through the latter half of John chapter 19.
