Introduction

(slide 1) I am deviating from the 1 Corinthians Series for a few weeks to focus on a Pre-Easter/Easter Series entitled Journey to the Resurrection. We must understand that there were several along the journey; we will not linger at all the stops on along the journey to the Resurrection, but we will pause at a few of them as we make our way there. Of course, the main character along this journey is JESUS! We will see where “Jesus is Arrested,” “Jesus is Denied,” “Jesus is Tried,” & “Jesus is Crucified.”
(slide 2) Turn with me to our first stop, , where JESUS IS ARRESTED. (read again verse 56)
(slide 3) I wanted to tag this text with this title: WHEN THE WATER GETS HOT! We need to understand how to behave in situations that are trying. We need to understand how to survive in situations that are troubling. We need to understand how to survive in situations that are tough.

I. Know Who You Can Count On (ref. ) (slide 4)

It’s indicative that we know that contextually the disciples couldn’t really be counted on. Look at the record in the verses 36-46 pericope.
They were not consistent in prayer nor praying!

II. Know Your True Friends & Your Real Enemies (47-50) (slide 5)

In the darkness of the olive grove and amid the confusion of the torches, it would have been easy for Jesus to escape. Instead, he stands his ground and allows Judas to approach him and greet him with a kiss. Such a kiss would be a sign of honour—except that it is the signal for the temple police to arrest him.” [Knowles, Andrew. The Bible Guide. 1st Augsburg books ed. Minneapolis, MN: Augsburg, 2001. Print.]

III. Know How to Maintain Your Cool in Heated Situation (51-56) (slide 6)

Acknowledge God’s Power (51-53)

Accept God’s Will (54-56a)
Violence is not God’s way. Jesus has all the protection he needs, should he care to call on the legions of angels at his command. But now the prophecies of his rejection and death must be fulfilled.” [Knowles, Andrew. The Bible Guide. 1st Augsburg books ed. Minneapolis, MN: Augsburg, 2001. Print.]
