‘No-one ever spoke the way this man does,’ the guards declared.
Adam and Eve disobeyed God when they said yes to Satan: Abram deceived his host when he said Sarai was his sister: Peter lied when he said he didn’t know Jesus. All through human history, our speech betrays our sinful hearts – apart from the speech of one Man. Jesus’ words reveal his pure, spotless nature and his great, immeasurable love for us.
The guards were right. No-one ever spoke the way Jesus did, and no-one ever will.
