This dark passage in John 12 opens a doorway into the clash between the dark powers holding sway over the world and Jesus, the embodiment of God's glory who has come to deal with them. In this video, Prof. Wright looks back to Jesus's prediction of his own crucifixion to see what he thought the purpose of his suffering would be, drawing all people to himself, drawing the dark powers to their defeat, and establishing God's new kingdom reality.
