Every thing is quiet behind the stone in front of the tomb, Jesus
must be confined securely, death is assured ! ! !
of stuff died on the cross, “Faith”, “hope”, “son” and
“savior” like Jesus said, “it's over!”
in the Life and Death of Jesus,
* looking beyond * the “CROSS”
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!
– day three
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.
Jesus is moved as looks upon
the “City of God,” the “City of David,” Jerusalem and the
Temple Mount. It is this day that Jesus cursed the barren fig tree!
Now in Jerusalem, Jesus comes to the Temple, the sight of the “money
changers” stirs righteous indignation and turns over all the
Matthew 23:37 “Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how
often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen
gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.
Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as
St. John 12;12 The next day
the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was
on his way to Jerusalem. 13. They took palm branches and went out
to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna! ” “Blessed is he who comes in
the name of the Lord!”“Blessed is the king of Israel!”
Most high and prayer
As we walk in Your garden as
did Adam and Eve we talk with Thee our God and Creator.
Let us be ever mindful of
the Love and Suffering of Your Son and the Savior of all
people of Creation.
intense week !
you ever read or walked the Stations of the Cross? Although mostly
observed by Catholic and Orthodox believer's yet it can be a very
moving experience for Protestant's like myself during this week of
Passover and Passion of Christ culminating with the Resurrection
Christian Salvation is like no other Faith.
Disciples could not be dissuaded, just try to imagine the words of
Jesus echoing in your head as you looked into the empty tomb. Is
there anything in your life that no matter what, what family, friends
or any one, you will never change.
