The "bad guy"
"bad guy" isn't the other guy
enemy isn't the "rich guy" or the minority that "looks
different" or "lives different"! It is not the left or
right! Our enemies aren't the protestant or Catholic or even the
shootings like the most recant night cub shutting, evil raises it's
or “his” ugly head. I to try to make sense of all of it, the
truth is we can't make sense of “evil”!
an effort to make sense of it some blame God, in the case of the
shootings others blame “guns” (If there wasn't any guns, there
couldn't be killings by guns) Sadly before guns were invented mankind
found even more heinous way to maim and kill one another.

you will take one step, God will take Two
St. Luke 19 we see Zacchaeus just out of curiosity climbed a tree to
see this man Jesus of Nazareth some call Christ , the Messiah or
Savior. Let me point out the Scripture tells us that Zacchaeus was
short (Vrs.3) so it took him some effort to get through the crowd and
then some struggle to climb the tree. Jesus passing by looked up and
said “I must stay at your house” knowing that Zacchaeus was only
curios yet put out much effort Jesus made Himself part of his life.

Remember Jesus has been in custody now for all night, 1
trial before Caiaphas, Jesus is held over for trial. The whole Sanhedrin is
gathered before sun up for a second trail, so the full Sanhedrin declares
Jesus of Nazareth a Blasphemer! (Matt.26:65)
Peter denies “he knows Jesus”!
A third trial at sun-up Jesus is declared guilty of Blasphemy worthy
Jesus sent to Pilate a “forth” trial.
Day Five Thur
Staring down the Old Rugged Cross.
The Plot thickens - Passover is ready
Like Jesus we shouldn't get distracted with time lines or days for
feasts but keep our eyes on the “Cross.” What is important here
is God's Plan!
It included the betrayal, the institution of Christ Communion, the
Cross and the coming Resurrection!
This is also the time Jesus washed the disciples feet, the prayer of
agony in Gethsemane and His ultimate arrest.
You God, we glorify; Have mercy on us, according to your unfailing
All Israel prepares a paschal lamb or a kid of a year old, Exo. 12:5 says it must be “an unblemished Male” on the tenth day of the month until the 14th day. Our pastor just preached on this, Jewish tradition says they would bring the lamb into their homes, clean it up, keep it till the day of the “Sacrifice.” It was special to them, it was the best they had!
Not much is said in the New Testament about Jesus and the disciples activities on this day. But we do know that in this silence in scripture, Gods plan was still in action!

Looking toward Via Dolorosa
Departing Bethany again on the 3 day they pass by the
orchard on the way to the temple; And Peter remembered and said to
him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered."
(Mark 11:21) Jesus used the teachable moment to encourage the
disciples faith. While at the temple the scribes and elders challenge
Jesus' authority. Leaving the temple Jesus taught with many
“parables” as they returned again to Bethany.
The betrayal begins: Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve,
went off to the chief priests in order to betray Him to them.
