Jesus and his followers were defeated, right?
Jesus was arrested and had been abandoned by even his closest disciples.
Peter, his second in command, had dropped the teaching of Jesus like a hot rock and then run and now was about to make that worse by cursing his former master and insisting that there had never been anything between them
Judas, realizing what he had done, tried to find a way to make things better, but ends up lost in the darkness of his own soul instead.
Can there be any victory from such a defeated group of people?
Of course there can.
