The Plot to Kill Jesus
Jesus said that 2 days after Passover the Son of Man will be delivered to be crucified.
Jesus Anointed at Bethany
Jesus was in the house of Simon the leper, a woman poured very expensive ointment on Jesus' head. The disciples say this is a waste, they should sell the oil and give the money to the poor. Jesus says to leave her alone, she is doing a great thing for me to prepare me for burial. "you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me."
It seems to me like the disciples have the right idea. Why waste this, we could help the poor. Jesus is like "this is nice, don't think to hard about it, let me enjoy it." Honestly, I think Jesus kinda come off like a jerk here. I know I have my bias, but I can't figure out what the actual point of this story is. What is the impression that I am supposed have here?
"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."
Can't help but notice her name is not mentioned.
Judas to Betray Jesus
Judas took 30 pieces of silver from the chief priest to betray Jesus. From that point on he is looking for an opportunity.
The Passover with the Disciples
Jesus says he will be betrayed by Judas. He says it would have been better if Judas had never been born
Institution of the Lord's Supper
Jesus gives the disciples bread and says eat this, it is my body and he gives them wine and says this is my blood. Drink it for the forgiveness of sins.
Jesus Foretells Peter's Denial
Jesus says the disciples will all abandon him, Peter says he will never, even if he has to die with Jesus. Jesus says he will deny him 3 times before the rooster crows
Jesus Prays in Gethsemane
Jesus prays for help from God. "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak". He prayed 3 times. He then wakes his disciples and says his betrayal by sinners is at hand, time to get going.
Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus
Judas came with a great crowd from the priests and elders of the people. He identified Jesus so the crowd can go after him. One person went up to Jesus and grabbed him and one of people with Jesus cut off the guy's ear and Jesus said told him to stop "live by the sword, die by the sword". Jesus asks why they came to him under cover of night, he has been in the temple teaching day after day.
I don't remember the part of the story where Jesus' guy cuts off the ear of the person who touched Jesus. It's pretty cool.
Jesus Before Caiaphas and the Council
They try to get some testimony to use to put Jesus to death. They ask if he is the Son of God, he says he is the Son of Man and he will be at the right hand of power coming on the clouds of heaven. They take this as blasphemy and decide to put him to death.
Peter Denies Jesus
Some servants claimed Peter had been with Jesus and he said not three times. Then the rooster crowed and he remembered that Jesus had said this would happen and he was sad.
