  1. John 18:1 (NLT) 1 After saying these things, Jesus crossed the Kidron Valley with his disciples and entered a grove of olive trees. 

  2. Gethsemane = “olive press”Kidron = “turbid”cloudy, dark, not clear

  3. John 18:2-3 (NLT) 2 Judas, the betrayer, knew this place, because Jesus had often gone there with his disciples. 3 The leading priests and Pharisees had given Judas a contingent of Roman soldiers and Temple guards to accompany him. Now with blazing torches, lanterns, and weapons, they arrived at the olive grove.

  4. contingent = “speira”a cohort of soldiersRoman cohorts = 600 menAuxiliary cohorts = 1000 men, 240 cavalry, 760 infantryManiple = 200 men

  6. The Unstoppable Downward Spiralfrom Boundaries in Leadership, by Henry Cloud You take it personally. “I am not enough.” “I am a failure/horrible person.” “God must hate me.” “God has forgotten me.”

  7. The Unstoppable Downward Spiralfrom Boundaries in Leadership, by Henry Cloud You take it personally. “I am not enough.” “I am a failure/horrible person.” “God must hate me.” “God has forgotten me.” 2.

You make it pervasive. “I can’t trust anyone.” “Nobody understands me/gets me.” “I’m the only one.” “God doesn’t really care.” 3. You think it’s permanent. “It will never change.” “It’s always going to be like this.” “There’s no way out.” “This is what my life is destined to be.” “My faith was a lie.” “God must not exist, or if He does, He is powerless or unwilling to change anything.”

  9. John 18:4 (NLT) 4 Jesus fully realized all that was going to happen to him, so he stepped forward to meet them. “Who are you looking for?” he asked.

  10. John 18:5a (NLT) 5 “Jesus the Nazarene,” they replied…

  11. John 18:5 (NLT) 5 “Jesus the Nazarene,” they replied. “I Am he,” Jesus said. (Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them.)

  12. I AM He = “ego eimi”“I, I AM”the Divine NameYHWH

  13. John 18:6 (NLT) 6 As Jesus said “I Am he,” they all drew back and fell to the ground!

  14. John 18:7-9 (NLT) 7 Once more he asked them, “Who are you looking for?”And again they replied, “Jesus the Nazarene.” 8 “I told you that I Am he,” Jesus said. “And since I am the one you want, let these others go.” 9 He did this to fulfill his own statement: “I did not lose a single one of those you have given me.”

  15. John 18:10-11 (NLT) 10 Then Simon Peter drew a sword and slashed off the right ear of Malchus, the high priest’s slave. 11 But Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword back into its sheath. Shall I not drink from the cup of suffering the Father has given me?”

  16. You See Mepoem by Sarah Yarbrough When I'm down in the valley And darkness dominates When I'm lost in the forest With no sign of escape You see me.  When I'm drowning in the sea And can't come up for air  When I'm blazing in the fire Left in miserable despair You see me. 

  17. When the pain is so thick And the sorrow too deep When the locks hold captive  What I long to release  You see me.  When I look up in wonder And cry out in grief When your gentle signs and wonders Remind me I believe You see me.

  18. The Unstoppable Downward Spiralfrom Boundaries in Leadership, by Henry Cloud You take it personally. Log your negative thoughts and dispute them with Truth. eg. “I am a failure.”  “I am complete in Christ.” 2. You make it pervasive. Write down evidence that it is NOT pervasive. List things that are going well. Things that are unaffected/ “Things I can’t control” vs. “Things I can control.” Make a plan and do it. “Your life is a movie, not a scene.” 3. You think it’s permanent. Get help. Open up. Lean on community.
