Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 226

  1. “Where I am going, you cannot come” (John 13:33).

We can probably debate long and hard over the “where” of Jesus statement. Is He speaking of His return to Heaven? Not likely since we’re headed there. Is He speaking of His suffering and death? Again, it would seem unlikely since the guys he’s speaking to will suffer and die for His sake. No, instead the place He’s going–the one place He must go alone–is to the place of carrying the judgment of sin for the whole world. That’s the true “solo” journey ahead of Jesus at this point. He will endure our penalty, all the way and including separation from the Father, the final defeat of Satan and all of his schemes. No one else can and no one else will head down that path. That’s likely the place where we cannot follow.
