Reading along with us in Luke? Here’s today’s reading:

Luke 22 (ESV)

Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.They were delighted and agreed to give him money. He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.

Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”....Continue Reading

  1. What a sad chapter. Judas resolves it is best to hand Jesus over and it seems as if the pay day is the most appealing part. It is interesting how Scripture tells us this is how God wanted it but Judas is still held accountable for his choice because it was still evil.

    And what a beautiful setting and reapplication of the Passover. It is a final time for Jesus to share a meal with His disciples and btw, this bread is my body broken, this wine is my blood spilt. They would get what Jesus meant after He is crucified and raised, but now there thoughts turn to who is the greatest..sad….clearly Jesus is and His greatness makes anyone else’s greatness pale in comparison. Oh and btw, the way to be great is to be a servant.

    And then Jesus goes out…as usual…to the Mount of Olives to pray. Precious time with His Father marred by the sleepfulness of His followers. And then He is arrested. He is treated as a common criminal…the Son of God, Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world. Sad, that one so great would be treated so poorly and cruelly.

  2. 28 “But you are those who have continued with Me in My trials. 29 And I bestow upon you a kingdom, just as My Father bestowed one upon Me, 30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.”
