27th July 2012 Luke 22.63-end
The men who were guarding Jesus began mocking and beating him. They blindfolded him and demanded, “Prophesy! Who hit you?” And they said many other insulting things to him. At daybreak the council of the elders of the people, both the chief priests and the teachers of the law, met together, and Jesus was led before them. “If you are the Messiah,” they said, “tell us.” Jesus answered, “If I tell you, you will not believe me, and if I asked you, you would not answer. But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.”. They all asked, “Are you then the Son of God?” He replied, “You say that I am.”. Then they said, “Why do we need any more testimony? We have heard it from his own lips.”
For those standing in judgement against Jesus they got what they wanted. But for us we see it positively; we know Jesus is the Son
Of God; we celebrate it.
As we celebrate the Olympics today let us celebrate that Jesus lives.
