Matthew 26-28

“But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed” (27:14).  Jesus refused to defend himself against the accusations of his enemies, and he allowed himself to be arrested in the garden, even calling Judas “friend.”  He made a disciple put his sword away and reminded him that angels could have rescued him (26:51).  In this way, he exposed the hearts of people; though he was innocent, they called out for his blood (27:22). 
“He is not here, for he is risen” (28:6). Jesus rejected the the world’s weapons, and his sacrifice defeated the power of darkness. His “weakness” became the glorious gift of life for all who believe in him.
