11/26/2017 – The Night Before Christmas – Part 4 – Rome

John 18:1-12. There may not be another scene in all of scripture where Empire and Kingdom stand in such contrast with each other, than Jesus betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane. The violent ways of empire brandishing it’s swords and clubs on one side, and the compassionate way of Kingdom healing its enemies on the other. And Peter (with us) somewhere in the messy middle.
