Holy Week – Thursday

I neglected to mention yesterday, Holy Week – Wednesday, that Judas met with the religious elite and agreed to betray Jesus.

The chief priests and the scribes were seeking how they might put Him (Jesus) to death; for they were afraid of the people. And Satan entered into Judas who was called Iscariot, belonging to the number of the twelve. And he went away and discussed with the chief priests and officers how he might betray Him to them. They were glad and agreed to give him money. So he consented, and began seeking a good opportunity to betray Him to them apart from the crowd.
Luke 22:2‭-‬6 NASB

Long night ahead:

Jesus before Caiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and elders were gathered.
Caiaphas accuses Jesus of blasphemy. The chief priests and Council (Sanhedrin) answered, “He deserves death” and they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists and rods.” (vs. 65-68)
Matthew 26:57-68

You have heard the blasphemy; how does it seem to you?” And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death. Some began to spit at Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him with their fists, and to say to Him, “Prophesy!” And the officers received (treated) Him with slaps in the face (blows with rods).
Mark 14:64‭-‬65
Mark 14:53-65;

Now Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it was expedient for one man to die on behalf of the people.
John 18:14 NASB
John 18:12-24, 28-40

🌹He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth. By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered That He was cut off out of the land of the living For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?Isaiah 53:3‭, ‬7‭-‬8 NASB

Lord Jesus, may I never take for granted what You went through to bring me life. May I learn from Your example to hold my tongue, trust that You always have a plan, and remember that they can kill the body but my soul is secure in You, Jesus!!!!! Amen

Continually Seeking Him,
