Kent Philpott's Bible Study Sermons

Jul 25, 2020

Following the prayer, Jesus enters the garden to a place where Jesus and His disciples often went. Judas knew of the location and arrived there with soldiers and officers, some Roman, some Jewish. Jesus approaches the group and asks who they are looking for. Jesus identifies Himself, and for reasons unknown, the armed bank falls back. Jesus does not hide but wants the disciples not to be harmed. Peter draws his sword and cuts off the ear of a servant of the high priest, named Malchus. No further trouble emerges. Jesus is brought before the high priest, Annas, first, then later Caiaphas.
Simon Peter had followed the group, and at the entrance proceeds to deny he knew Jesus two times.
