Church, The last few Sunday the live-streamed service broadcast has been interrupted. We have tested the system during the week and even before worship successfully. However, once the service begins, the connections is lost. Hopefully it has been worked out. I have suspected that there has been a heavy load on our bandwidth commencing at 11AM on Sundays from another device.
If the connection drops again this Sunday, I will record the service and upload it by 1PM the same day. Thanks for you patience and understanding. Patrick
† The Gospel John 18:33–37
John’s trial narrative raises these questions in compelling ways. Although Pilate and the Jewish leaders may appear to be powerful, John presents Jesus as the one who exercises authority.
The charge of kingship is the central question of Jesus’ trial before Pilate. Jesus never answers Pilate’s question, “Are you the king of the Jews?” (John 18:33), in a straightforward way. As in other parts of the Gospel, John communicates some of the most important messages about Jesus’ identity by enacting them in the story instead of stating them outright.
