Title: HIS LIFE 50
Blog Entry: Today's writing is based on Matthew 26:1-25: When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, You know that the feast of the passover is in two days, and the Son of man is going to be betrayed to be crucified. The chief priests, and the legal experts, and the elders of the people gathered together, in the palace of the highest priest, who was called Caiaphas,and talked about how they would take Jesus, and kill him.  They said, not on the day of the feast, so there wouldn't be an uproar among the people. When Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, A woman came to him having an alabaster box of very expensive perfume (ointment), and poured it on his head, as he set at dinner.  When his disciples saw it, they became angry saying, what is the purpose of this waste?  For this perfume might have been sold for a lot of money, and given to the poor.  When Jesus heard, he said to them, Why do you trouble this woman? for she has done a good work for me.  You will always have the poor with you; but you will not always have me.  For she has poured this perfume on my body, in preparation for my burial.  I say to you, Wherever this gospel will be preached in the world, there will also be this, what this woman has done, will be told as a memorial for her. Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests, and said, What Will you give me, and I will deliver him to you?  And they conspired with him for thirty pieces of silver. From that time on he looked for the opportunity to betray him. The first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying, Where will you want us to prepare for you to eat the passover? And he said, Go in to the city to a certain man, and say to him, The Master said, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at your house with my disciples.  And the disciples did as Jesus had asked them; and they prepared the passover.  Now when the evening came, he sat down with the twelve disciples, and as they were eating he said, I say to you, that one of you will betray me. Very saddened, every one of them said to him, Lord is it me (I)?  He answered and said, He that dips his hand with me in the dish, will be the one who betrays me. The Son of man goes as it has been written of him: but woe to the man who betrays the Son of man!  It would have been good for that man if he had not been born. Then Judas, who betrayed him, said, Master, is it me (I)? He said to him,  You have said it. Copyright © Eloise Dunn Do not use without permission
