Class 15: Thy Will Be Done - Life & Teachings of Jesus
December 5, 2022
Jesus, betrayed, is arrested and brought before the Sanhedrin. Through mocking, beating, and lying, they attempt to force Jesus to admit to heresy, but Jesus is unmoved. Remaining completely detached and in his inner dignity, Jesus gives an eternal answer to all suffering, "You would have no authority over me unless it had given you from above," with this single sentence, Jesus gives us a teaching for all time in how to face, and overcome, our tests - for all things come from God alone. Brought then before Pilate, Jesus again refuses to bow before worldly power, accepting above all else, the will of God. Condemned to death, in spite of Pilate's best attempts, Jesus begins his journey down the Via Dolorosa. Thy will be done.
