William Tyndale, first translated the Bible from Hebrew and Greek into English, making a Bible for the common people. In 1535 he was betrayed by a friend, taken prisoner to the castle of Vilford, and continued to work on his translation. He was unable to finish his work … More
Judas Iscariot went to the chief priests to arrange for Jesus’ betrayal and struck up a bargain for thirty pieces of silver (vv. 10-11). Perhaps you are wondering how he could do such a terrible thing. Very likely Judas expected Jesus to start a political rebellion and overthrow Rome. Now as it became evident that Jesus kingdom was not physical or political but spiritual Judas’ greedy desire for money and status could not be fulfilled if he continued to follow Jesus. Regardless of what motivated him it is clear that Judas allowed his desires to place him in a position where Satan could manipulate him. It is evident that the desire for money can make a person blind to honesty and decency.
It was the first day of the feast of unleavened bread (v. 12). The Passover lamb was to be slain between 3:00-6:00 p.m. on the 14th day of Miran. Since for the Jews the new day began with sundown, it would have been Friday when Jesus and His disciples met in the upper room. Each worshiper slew his own lamb in the Temple and then it was carried home to be roasted. It must not be boiled. The disciples asked the Lord where they should prepare to eat the Passover. It was a rule of the Jews that it must be eaten between sunset and midnight. Also there must be a group of at least ten to twenty people for each lamb which made the disciples an ideal group.
Jesus told Peter and John to find a man, “bearing a pitcher of water,"(a man with a water-pot on his shoulder would stand out in the crowd because these were usually carried by women) and he would show them an upper room already prepared (vv.13-15). These two disciples went into the city and found everything just as Jesus had said (v. 16).
How would I feel if one of my closest associates on this earth was to betray me for a sum of money? Would I be able to accept it as part of God’s will for my life? Perhaps I can think of someone who has really disappointed me and I still hold bad feelings toward them. If so, I need to make this right.
