Responding to Betrayal (Luke 22:21-30)
Luke 22:21-30 presents a progression of four responses to Jesus’ announcement that he will be betrayed. The first two are normal but sinful human responses that we see in the apostles: suspicion and competition. Though the actions of Judas would be a betrayal of Jesus, he was also betraying the trust of the other apostles. The final two responses are the ways that Jesus intervenes to guide the apostles through the situation: correction and affirmation. When betrayed, we often respond as the apostles did, but we need to allow Jesus to intervene in our lives. This sermon is part 3 of “The Betrayal of Jesus,” Bryan Craddock’s verse-by-verse Bible teaching series on Luke 22.
