THE JOURNEY TO CALVARY

SIN DEFEATED – RESURRECTION SUNDAY

 

 

The Last Supper

 

17 Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Where will you have us prepare for you to eat the Passover?” 18 He said, “Go into the city to a certain man and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, My time is at hand. I will keep the Passover at your house with my disciples.’” 19 And the disciples did as Jesus had directed them, and they prepared the Passover.

20 When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve. 21 And as they were eating, he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And they were very sorrowful and began to say to him one after another, “Is it I, Lord?” 23 He answered, “He who has dipped his hand in the dish with me will betray me. 24 The Son of Man goes as it is written of him, but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been better for that man if he had not been born.” 25 Judas, who would betray him, answered, “Is it I, Rabbi?” He said to him, “You have said so.”

26 Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” 27 And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.” Matthew 26:17-29 (ESV)

 

 

 

 

Christ’s Anointing At Bethany

 

When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to His disciples, (2) “You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.” (3) Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, (4) and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill Him.  (5) But they said, “Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people.”

 

(6) Now when Jesus was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, (7) a woman came up to Him with an alabaster flask of very expensive ointment, and she poured it on His head as he reclined at table.  (8) And when the disciples saw it, they were indignant, saying, “Why this waste?” (9) For this could have been sold for a large sum and given to the poor.” (10) But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? For she has done a beautiful thing to me.  (11) For you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me.  (12) In pouring this ointment on my body, she has done it to prepare me for burial.  (13) Truly, I say to you, wherever this gospel is proclaimed in the whole world, what she has done will also be told in memory of her.”

 

(14) Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests (15) and said, “What will you give me if I deliver Him over to you?” And they paid him thirty pieces of silver.  (16) And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray Him.  Matthew 26:1-16 (ESV)

 

 

 

Christ’s Triumphant Entry to Jerusalem – Palm Sunday

 

Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethpage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples (2) and said to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat.  Untie it and bring it. (3) If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’” (4) And they went away and found a colt tied at a door outside in the street, and they united it. (5) And some of those standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” (6) And they told them what Jesus had said, and they let them go. (7) And they brought their cloaks to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and He sat on it. (8) And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. (9) And those who went before and those who followed were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! (10) Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!”

(11) And He entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. And when He had looked around at everything, as it was already late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve. Mark 11:1-11 (ESV)
