Episode Type: Special Edition

Welcome to another special edition of the Share Life podcast. We're in an ongoing podcast series, as part of the discovery process for my next book project, From The Garden to the Cross: How Jesus' Harrowing Mission Shows Us The Way.

In this discussion, we're rewinding and reflecting on the Farewell Discourse, which is the final conversation Jesus had with his disciples immediately before his harrowing passion began.

In this conversation series, we've discussed Jesus' agonizing prayer in the gardenhis middle of the night arrest, Judas' betrayala night of scheming to kill Jesus, the three denials by Peterthe death of JudasPilot asking Jesus about TruthHerod directing Jesus to entertain himPilate washing his hands of responsibility, Simon carrying Jesus' cross, Jesus forgiving his perpetrators, and Jesus' final finishing moments on the cross.

Now, we're rewinding in time, to the moments right before we enter the Garden of Gethsemane to see and reflect on what Jesus said before his suffering journey began and his disciples quickly dispersed. Through the Last Supper and the Farewell Discourse, the disciples drank a firehouse of information from Jesus having very little time to process it before all hell broke loose. We read and discuss key passages from each section of the Farewell Discourse (from John 14-16) that encapsulate what's communicated.

Rachel Darnall is a homeschooling mom, sporadic blogger, and author at various Christian media outlets. She's currently writing "Daughters of Sarah," a book on women, liberty & submission. We originally connected on Twitter.
