8/22/15 Your Time Is Almost Up

The Pharisees and Sadducees hear the whispers of the people and grow more alarmed.  They send out guards to search for Jesus.  “Master, we have found Him!  Come, follow me,” reports one guard about an hour later.  The Pharisees and Sadducees follow the guards to the spot where Jesus has been sighted and confront Him there.  But before they can say anything, Jesus turns to them and says, “I will only be here with you a little while longer, then I will go back to Him who sent Me.  You will search for Me everywhere but will not find Me, because you cannot go where I go.”  The Pharisees and Sadducees examine every word carefully, for they are seeking evidence to use against Him to put Him to death.  “Where is He planning to go where we won’t find Him?  Maybe to teach the Jews who are living among the Greeks?  But we could find Him there!  What does He mean, saying that we will search everywhere for Him but won’t find Him?  And that we can’t go where He will go?”  They stand there debating while Jesus slips away again.  Even the watching eyes of the guards don’t see Him leave.
