Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s denial foretold by Jesus

Judas’s betrayal and Peter’s denial foretold by Jesus Today I’ll be talking about Judas and Peter, and how their stories differ from each other, why their stories differ, and what we can learn from that.  Let me pray and then I’ll read from John 13:21-38. There’s a beautiful part there in the middle about the new commandment, but I’m going to be focusing on the first bit and the last bit. So in this, Jesus predicts Judas’ betrayal and Peter’s…

Jesus predicts his own death

Jesus predicts his death Wikus John 12:20-36 It’s Tuesday of Holy Week, and this is my favourite day. I mean Friday and Sunday are obviously the best, but I love the Tuesday of Holy Week.  We’ve just had the triumphal entry, palm Sunday, and the people were cheering for Jesus, they were overjoyed that he was there, and then five days later, on Good Friday, they’re baying for his blood. They want him dead, they rather release Barabbas, a murderer,…
