Judas arrives and Jesus is arrested, but not by Romans. He is arrested by those employed by Jewish religious leaders. He is then led from Gethsemane to the house of Caiaphas the high priest where he is accused of things he has not done and condemned to death under the Jewish law. Notice who passes sentence on him: the ones most threatened by his message. The ones who are most afraid of losing their power if the things he said and did were to be proven true. When we embrace Jesus and his way, things in our lives cannot stay the same. Surrendering power to him is what it means for him to be Lord. Where are we afraid to do that in our lives? Where does Jesus threaten the things that are “established” in our living? Where are we afraid of what following Jesus might actually mean for us?
