Jesus’ Mic Drop Moments

Have you ever been reading Jesus’ words and been in absolute awe over them? Us, too. So much so, we can almost envision Jesus mic dropping after one of His truth bombs!

Mic dropping, according to, is “the act of intentionally dropping one’s microphone at the end of a speech or performance, displaying a bold confidence that it has been very impressive or cannot be topped.

Now, Jesus, in all His humility, maybe would not have done something like this if microphones had existed back then, but He definitely could have if He wanted to since His words were, indeed, very impressive and could not be topped.

DISCLAIMER: We know that EVERY moment of Jesus’ was a mic drop moment since He IS the Truth and speaks nothing but truth!

However, we want to highlight a few of our favorite epic moments of His where He TOTALLY could have dropped a mic if He wanted to.

1. “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

Boom. Mic Drop. Jesus could not be more clear. When the disciples were asking Jesus questions, Jesus cut to the chase by emphasizing humanity’s need for Him and Him only. Don’t look elsewhere from Jesus. Look to Jesus for the way; look to Jesus for truth; look to Jesus for life. No one else can satisfy our needs like Jesus can.

2. “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” (John 8:7)

This is just incredible. First of all, Jesus puts us all in our place right here as He reminds us that none of us are without sin. But also, have you ever had someone defend you when you were feeling attacked? It is a wonderful feeling to have someone in your corner who cares about you and wants the best for you. Well, that is who Jesus is to us. He is our Defender, and just like He did with the woman who had committed adultery, He will also do with us one day. When we are accused for all of our wrongs and sin – when the devil wants to point fingers – Jesus will not condemn us who have accepted His gift of taking the punishment for our sins on the cross.

3. “You would have no authority over me at all unless it had been given you from above.” (John 19:11)

After Pilate flashes his “authority” to Jesus by telling Jesus he has the “power” to crucify or release Him, Jesus responds with this mic drop moment, setting the record straight of who is really in control and sovereign over all. Many may think they are their own ultimate authority, but in all truth, the holy Triune God and King of Kings, Jesus, is the Ultimate Authority and bestows authority to us on earth how He wishes. The irony in this conversation Jesus had with Pilate was that Jesus could dismantle Pilate from his authority in the blink of an eye and break free from being crucified, but instead, He yielded and willingly gave Himself for us on the cross.

Again, EVERY moment of Jesus’ is a mic drop moment – after all, He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords – it does not get any better than Him. But, let’s celebrate how epic our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is and meditate on His awe-inspiring words! What moment of Jesus’ can you think of where Jesus TOTALLY could have dropped a mic if He wanted to?
