The Life of Jesus; read today: Mob comes to arrest Jesus; Matthew 26:47; Mark 14:43; John 18:2-3

ESV: John Chapter 18
 [2] Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples.
 [3] So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons.

So the end of Jesus life here on earth begins.  Though He taught openly during the day, and He brought light to the people, the end begins in the dark.

When it is dark, you need light to see. So Judas comes with some light, but not the light. The soldiers carry some small lanterns and torches. They thought that in the light they had, they were doing what was right.

That is the problem, I can be influenced by light that is not the light, but a counterfeit.  They can influence me to do things, gossip about people, desire things that should not, etc.

I need to learn to move away from the small light and move too THE light.  The small ones are ones sent by Satan to deceive me.

Read for next time: Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss; Matthew 26:48-50, Mark 14:44-45; Luke 22:47-48
