When a film director wants the audience to focus on the magnitude of what’s happening in a scene, they will often bring the shot in close and slow everything down. That’s kind of what John is doing for us in chapters 13-17.   Jesus is in the upper room with His disciples just hours before … [Read More…] The Troubled
