March 30, 2018. "The Reign of Jesus." John 18:1 - 19:42.
In John's account of the Passion, Jesus is in charge. Jesus is a king. The reign of Jesus is not from this world. The reign is in this world. Fighting is not necessary. The reign of Jesus is truth. The people demand falsehood. The people demand an earthly emperor. From the body of Christ comes forth blood and water. The story will continue.
