Read John 18:19-24
Jesus replied, “If I said anything wrong, you must prove it. But if I’m speaking the truth, why are you beating me?” – John 18:23 (NLT)
The authority of Jesus comes through loud and clear. Annas has no answer, and sends Him to Caiaphas. The world has no real answer to the claims of Jesus, and often reacts with violence, even today. Pray that God would enable you also to stand firm in the word and authority of Jesus when you are confronted for your faith, and to even endure unjust consequences just as our Savior did.
