"Three Ways to Be Human" Matthew 26:47-56 (Matthew: The Power of the King)

In the midst of their late night prayer time in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus and his disciples are interrupted by Judas and a great crowd armed with swords and clubs. This scene is the betrayal and arrest of Jesus. Judas sells out with a kiss. Peter swings his sword. And Jesus lets it happen. As we watch these 3 men in the garden, we see a mirror into own broken souls and the ways we live out our humanity. Misplaced desires and misplaced confidence expose our need for a Savior.
