Can you imagine God being arrested by the very people He created? Yet this had to occur in order for the death of Christ on the Cross to be accomplished. There was no other way for mankind to be redeemed, forgiven, and justified that we might inherit forgiveness of our sin and receive eternal life. The trials, denials, and betrayal were all part of the plan even though we see this as a setup. God the Holy Trinity set everything up for the sake of you and me finding the purpose of our existence. To bring us back into the union, friendship, and peace with our Creator God. To deliver us from the destruction of sin and death and give our lives a beautiful purpose. Peace with God and a relationship with Christ our Savior!
