I wanted to share a few verses that really stood out to me and we discussed them in our small group tonight. The night that Jesus was getting arrested in John Chapter 18 it says that Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place that Jesus had often met with his disciples. So Judas came in the grove, guiding a DETACHMENT OF SOLDIERS and SOME OFFICIALS from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were all carrying TORCHES and WEAPONS.
And of course Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen, went out and asked, “Who is it you want?”
"Jesus of Nazareth", they replied.
“I AM HE” Jesus said. And it says in verse 6, that when He said that THEY DREW BACK AND FELL TO THE GROUND!!!
Seriously how powerful is that. They literally drew back and fell to the ground from the three words Jesus spoke. They came to arrest a meek peasant and instead were met in a dim light by a majestic and powerful person.
