Even playful reading has limits!
Now is the judgement of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out.John 12:31
I’ve always read this as “now the world will be judged, now Satan will be driven out.”. But surely Jesus is truly the ruler of the world? Could it be the other way around? Could he be saying “now the world will make it’s judgement, and I will be driven out?”
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myselfJohn 12:32
