Walk thru Holy Week – Wednesday

April 12, 2017

Wednesday Holy Week by Kerry Green

 

  • The chief priests and scribes were looking for a way to arrest and kill Jesus.  They were afraid of him because the crowds were spellbound by his teachings.   
  • Judas Iscariot goes to help them.  He betrays Jesus.
  • Jesus teaches the disciples and tells them of what will come

 

Jesus continues to teach his disciples.  He also speaks of three prophecies:

First,  He tells his disciples “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.”

Secondly, he repeats the same message.  He states that “The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him and three days after being killed, he will rise again.”

Lastly, he says this to them:    “We are going up to Jerusalem,” he said, “and the Son of Man will be delivered over to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will hand him over to the Gentiles, 34 who will mock him and spit on him, flog him and kill him. Three days later he will rise.”  He also tells them that He will be betrayed by one of his own disciples.

QUESTIONS:

Pretend you are one of the disciples.  You have given up  your life to follow and learn from Jesus.  You have followed Him everywhere.  You have learned so much from Him.  Now He tells you and the others that he is going to be killed, and killed in a brutal way.  

  1. What is your reaction? Are you scared? Mad? Sad? Confused?
  2. What are the reactions of the other disciples?
  3. Are you afraid the Roman authorities will come after you, too?
  4. What do you say to Jesus when you talk to Him after hearing this?
  5. What does He say back to you?
  6. Do you want to run or never leave His side?

What do you think?
