John 18:1 - 19:42

Good Friday - Year B

John 18:1 - 19:42

A long, long reading summarized:

Jesus gardened
Judas and soldiers bring broad-band herbicide
I AM me (are YOU you?)

Peter infected by homicide is tone-deaf to Jesus’ teaching
cuts off another’s ear
Again, “get behind me, Tempter”

Jesus bound for trial (jury-rigged)
seen as scapegoat by priests
denied by Peter

Jesus from frying pan to fire
redefines fire
truth beyond fact

Jesus bartered for
Barabbas released
Jesus beaten

a “non-suit” ruling given
but mob politics rules the day
negative campaigning comes to the fore

Jesus handed over to crucifixion
carried his own torture instrument
crucified naked

I AM your son
I AM your mother

meat thermometer read “done”
cooled and put in the freezer
... to be continued
