Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
It was now two days before the festival of the Passover and of Unleavened Bread. And the high priests and scribes were casting about for a way to arrest him by stealth and put him to death,
The festival of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was approaching.
Before the Passover Festival began, Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father, but he had loved those who were his own in the world, and he loved them to the last.
The Son of Man is to go away as the Scriptures say of him, but alas for the man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had never been born!"
As they were going about in Galilee, Jesus said to them, "The Son of Man is going to be handed over to men,
"We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the high priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death,
and said, "I did wrong when I handed an innocent man over to death!" They said, "What is that to us? You see to it yourself."
Remember what he told you while he was still in Galilee,
So at supper??he devil having by this time put the thought of betraying Jesus into the mind of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son??3 Jesus, fully aware that the Father had put everything into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God,
Judas who betrayed him also knew the place, for Jesus often met his disciples there.
