Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 313

  1. “I have spoke openly to the world,” Jesus replied (John 18:20).

Yes, the message of the Gospel has been for the whole world. It is not hidden from any. Here, at his initial trial before Annas, Jesus feels little need to defend or describe His teaching as it has been available for all. No secret plans. No private initiatives. And no reason why the high priest’s father-in-law shouldn’t have access to it. Jesus won’t “recast His pearls before swine.” Instead, He is ready to be judged for what He has said, and He knows that only those who would twist His words could find a case against Him. His word is truth, and when we proclaim His message, we speak truth as well. Truth is it’s own defense.
