Read John 18 today.

This chapter includes Jesus’ arrest and questioning. It is clear, He is being questioned by the high priest for the purpose of finding a reason to condemn Him. The high priest is not seeking knowledge or wisdom. He is not seeking the answer to a troubling question of faith. He knew the answer before he asked the question.
We sometimes do the same thing when we read our Bibles. We already know what we want it to say. We already have an interpretation and application in mind. We already know someone ‘who really needs to read this.’
Perhaps we should begin any reading with the prayer, “God, speak to me as I read this today.”
John 18:19 NIV
Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
