The night when Jesus was betrayed, arrested, scourged and condemned was the Darkness Before the Dawn. The night before our Lord Jesus was crucified was an extraordinary night! It began with the Lord’s Supper. Then Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane, where he prayed. Then, Judas arrived with a mob and arrested Jesus. A series of trial followed in which our Lord Jesus was taken to Annas, then to Caiaphas, then to Pilate, then to Herod, and then back to Pilate again. Our Lord was crucified at 9 o’clock in the morning. So these “trials” must all have taken place either late at night or in the early hours of the morning. Pastor Colin helps us retrace these events that took place in the darkness before the dawn of the resurrection.
