We turn out attention again to the final moments in the life of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of John. We recall that this gospel is not merely recounting the details of Jesus’ life and death. The author makes his purpose known in John 20:31 that these were written so that those who read it would believe, with true saving faith, that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. We must consider this all the more as we notice all the details concerning the arrest and trial of Jesus that are omitted in this gospel. This is to cause us as readers to consider carefully the details that the author does include and how these details are to cause us to have faith in Jesus.
