TEACHING- [Past links- verses below]
Judas comes with the guards to take Jesus.
Jesus asks ‘who are you here for’?
They reply ‘Jesus’.
Jesus ‘I AM he’.
They fall backward to the ground.
John 18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
John 18:6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.
The get up- and Jesus says-
‘Who are you here for- I told you I’m he- let these go away’.
As far as I can tell this is the only incident in the gospels where Jesus used the power he had- to actually cause sinful men to fall down.
The bible says ‘this happened so it might be fulfilled that Jesus lost none’.
Ok- when did Jesus say that?
The last chapter- John 17.
John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
I think we see here how Jesus word- which he just prophesied a chapter before- was going to come to pass- regardless of the intentions of men.
It seems as if the guards were going to arrest them all-
It made no sense for them to simply come and get Jesus- then let his followers continue the movement.
No- they figured they would stop the movement in one shot.
But Jesus had something else in mind- and he showed them that they had no power over him- and he was only allowing them to take him- because this was the ‘cup’ the Father chose for him.
John 18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
We read that Peter and ‘the other disciple’ followed Jesus to the high priest’s court. [Some sites see here https://corpusoutreach.weebly.com/most-recent-posts/john-18 ]
That other disciple is John.
