Final Week — Tuesday Afternoon

“As the long day of confrontation and teaching comes to an end, Jesus tells his disciples that his death is only two days away.  Aware that the festival is almost upon them, the chief priests and elders are anxious to have Jesus killed before that time.  Even as they plot how to snare Jesus, they are approached by Judas Iscariot, one of Christ’s chosen disciples.

Judas has decided to betray Jesus, and has therefore come to bargain with the members of the council.  The amount agreed to is 30 pieces of silver (which at this time is the approximate price of a slave).  Judas is apparently both covetous and dishonest — this despite the fact that he has been acting as a kind of treasurer for the disciples.”

Final Week — Wednesday

“There is strong evidence that the last supper takes place on the evening prior to the Day of Preparation, which by modern reckoning would be Wednesday night.  Proceeding upon that assumption, the events associates with this final Wednesday include not only Jesus’ last public teaching, but also the account of Peter and John finding the upper room and making preparations for the Passover celebration.”

Discourse of Future Events

“When one of the disciples comments on the beauty of the temple and its stones, Jesus makes the cryptic observation that there will come a time when the temple will be destroyed.  Peter, Andrew, James, and John come to Jesus privately wanting to know more about the temple’s destruction, the signs of his coming and the end of the age.  From their Jewish apocalyptic perspective, they apparently anticipate that the end of the age will coincide with Jesus’ imminent political ascendancy.  Even now, they misunderstand the nature of his kingdom.

In order to underscore the need for watchfulness, faithfulness, and spiritual readiness, Jesus will conclude his prophecies by telling two parables and describing the final judgment.”

Final Week — Tuesday Morning

“Tuesday comes as a day of great confrontation with the religious leaders assembled in Jerusalem.  By way of parables, Jesus points out that the leaders’ predecessors have always rejected God’s messengers and that now they themselves are rejecting even the Son of God.  This obviously angers the Pharisees, and they attempt to trap Jesus into making some statement by which they can have him arrested.

The Pharisees are then joined in their questioning by the Sadducees.  Although the Sadducees often clash politically and religiously with the Pharisees, the Sadducees are equally threatened by Jesus’ teaching.  So they are willing to join with the Pharisees to rid themselves of this Galilean troublemaker.

When a Pharisee questions Jesus concerning the greatest commandment, he delivers a response that goes to the heart of his message and ministry.  Observing a widow contributing all that she has — although it was only two small goings — Jesus points to her as an example of true spirituality.”
