The Arrest & Trial of Jesus

When a band of soldiers arrive at the garden of Gethsemane seeking to arrest Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus turns to them and says, “I am he.” In fact, this short phrase appears three times during this part of the narrative, which means that John is placing special emphasis on these words. So why are they significant, and what effect do they end up having upon the hearers? On this episode the hosts arrive at chapter 18 in their continuing study of the Gospel of John as Jesus is arrested and placed on trial by Israel’s chief priests.
