If Jesus’ glory surpasses even what has been written by John, will you not follow him?
Jesus is worthy to be loved and followed in life and in death.
Belief in the resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is foundational to the Christian faith and always manifests itself.
The cross is Jesus’ “hour” of glory where death gives birth to life.
The evil-intended treatment of Jesus reveals him as the good-intended fulfillment of God’s promises.
Jesus is the submissive paschal Lamb (18:28–32) Jesus is the reigning King over all (18:33–40)
Jesus, the True High Priest, is the bedrock of our confidence.
