‘Jesus in the garden, the court and the courtyard’ (John 18:1-27)

In John 18:1-27, John describes some of the important events  that happened on the way to the cross for Jesus, namely, his arrest in the garden, his trial before Annas and his denial by Peter. However, John presents these in a way that helps the reader to understand that Jesus remain in complete and calm control of His destiny. The cross would not come about by accident but by His obedience to His Father’s will.
