Show Notes

We continue with “Perspectives on Easter” – our series focused on the people who played both major and minor roles in the Easter narrative, as well as the relevant places, practices, artifacts, and traditions related to Easter. Today we feature a first person monologue from the servant of Joseph Caiaphas, the high priest who condemned Jesus to die.


When Jesus was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, a “multitude” of soldiers, high priests, Pharisees, and servants arrived with Judas Iscariot to arrest Jesus. Trying to protect Jesus, Peter took a sword and attacked a man named Malchus, the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. Jesus rebuked Peter and miraculously healed the man’s ear. It’s surprising that witnessing this amazing miracle of healing had no effect on the multitude. However, perhaps there was some lasting impact on this one man whom the Lord noticed in the middle of all that chaos.


Scriptures referenced include John 18.
