Luke 22:63–65 (ESV)

Jesus Is Mocked

63 Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking him as they beat him. 64 They also blindfolded him and kept asking him, “Prophesy! Who is it that struck you?” 65 And they said many other things against him, blaspheming him.


Jesus is mocked as a prophet by those holding Him. Previously accused of blasphemy, Jesus, the Son of God, is now blasphemed. Today, we mock Jesus whenever we withhold the honor that is rightfully His as God’s Son. Yet, “when He was reviled, He did not revile in return,” that He might bear “our sins in His body on the tree” (1Pt 2:23–24).


I pray: Grant us, dear Savior, true confession of our sins and of faith, that we may always honor You as our Messiah and the Son of God. Amen.

 Edward A. Engelbrecht, The Lutheran Study Bible (St. Louis, MO: Concordia Publishing House, 2009), 1767.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
