    John 19:1–16 Jesus Delivered to Be Crucified

    First, Pilate has Jesus flogged, not as bad as the dreaded scourging, which does come later, after taunting and humiliation, just before being sent to the site of the execution. Next, the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate hopes his vile treatment of Jesus is enough to satisfy His enemies, but it is not. After some back and forth, where it is apparent that Pilate finds no reason to execute Jesus, he encounters backlash. Pilate finally gives in and allows Jesus to be crucified.

    #49 – John 17: Jesus' High Priestly Prayer

    #49 – John 17: Jesus' High Priestly Prayer

    The entire chapter is Jesus’ prayer, said somewhere along the road to the Garden of Gethsemane or while yet in the Upper Room. To begin, Jesus stands and lifts up His eyes to heaven. The focus of His prayer is that the Father would glorify Him, that is, bring Him once again into His presence as He had been prior to the incarnation. Part of the prayer is that His followers would be one and will be with Him, and to see His glory that was His before the foundation of the world.

    #48 – John 16:25-33 – Overcome The World

    Jesus tells His disciples He will be leaving the world and going to the Father. He desires they have an inner peace, since being in the world, they will experience tribulation. Hearing this, Jesus’ followers are quick to speak to Him of their loyalty and know for sure that Jesus is sent by God. The Twelve profess faith in Jesus who then tells them that a time is coming when they will all be scattered and go back to their homes. However, He lets them know that He has overcome the world.

    #47 – John 16:16-24 – Sorrow Turns To Joy

    These will be Jesus’ last words to His disciples prior to His crucifixion. Despite appearances, there will be joy—that settled, peaceful, and hopeful mindset that cannot be perverted by external circumstances. When Jesus leaves, the disciples will grieve, and the world, those who reject His Lordship, will rejoice. But His followers will have joy, which they will never lose. He invites His followers to pray to the Father, in His name.
