Rev. Shawn Kumm, pastor of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Cody, Wyoming, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study John 18. Even in the deep of night, the light of the world shines on. Confronted with lanterns, torches, and weapons, our Lord doesn’t shrink back. In fact, He so candidly gives Himself up, the soldiers fall back! Three times Jesus pierces the darkness and hints that He is the Messiah. Later, before the high priest, He will three times point to how openly He has taught in public. Meanwhile, the disciples will three times deny their master, even as the forces of darkness hold an illegal and secret trial in the darkness. The contrast is day and night. All the while, John develops the Passover theme in chapter 18. Jesus is bound and led away to the high priest, presented like a sacrifice. The Judean authorities cautiously preserve their ritual purity so they can eat the second night’s Passover dinner, all the while missing that God’s true Passover is standing there in front of them, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. This sacrificial lamb has come to rule the world as king, but He is misunderstood at every turn by a world full of dark motives.
