The time has come. Jesus was rejected by his disciples, by his people, and by the Roman soldiers and officials.
The scenes in this chapter were surreal – the accusing were frantic and confrontational; the accused was calm and rational.
‘…, he was led like a lamb to the slaughter…’ (Isa 53:7b)
Jesus, the Lamb of God.
He came to die; He came to save.
If we are on the side of truth, we ought to listen to Jesus. The incomprehensible love should overcome us and make us confess and regret for our sin – we were no better than the Jews nor Gentiles – all men fall short of the glory of God and are destined to perish.
If we are on the side of truth, we should recognize that there is no other name we would be saved from the wrath, only by Jesus’ redemption.
If we are on the side of truth, we should follow Him and walk in His path… Lord, help us to understand how limited we are and how great you are, help us to remain in you and stay on the side of truth, your side. Amen. —- Ivy Lin
