Addison Street Community Church

Love in a Dark Hour

Straddled between two predictions of treachery is a ‘new’ command. Just as Christ showed us how to serve by serving us (13:15), he also showed us how to love by sacrificing for us (13:34). Jesus has equipped his chosen to love in the midst of darkness. #1- The Dark Backdrop of Treachery (18-30); #2- The Powerful Light of Love (31-38).

Conspiracy from without (ch 11) and betrayal and denial from within all served to advance God’s sovereign plan to save his beloved, chosen people, forming a new community.
