June 26- Ch. 26

I think it is strange when Jesus tells the disciples one of them will betray him they all ask, “is it I?”  If I was in the group I would be asking, “Is it him? Or him? Or him?”  It just seem steange to me they would be asking about themselves instead of each other.

    I have heard this question from one or two others, but one wonders how the Gospel writers knew what he prayed to the Father in Gethsemane, since the key players were all sound asleep and the others were left behind at a distance–at least our of ear shot. It just came to me that that’s how most of the disciples got away from the mob–they were back from the main scene to begin with.

      Sharon, that is an excellent question. I wonder if after his resurrection Jesus might have shared with some of the disciples what he actually prayed for in the garden.

    I had not noticed it before. Look at verse 18. Some things stand out. First he says go to a certain man. Second he says to them to say “The teacher says “My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.” Why not have them just say I will keep the passover at your house. Why the addition of my time is at hand. In verse 2 he tells the disciples he will be delivered up to be crucified during the passover. Did the my time is at hand have a special meaning to the person it was said to? I believe it is tied into his being delivered up to be crucified.

      Larry, I think your take is right on. My guess, whoever this person was, Jesus had talked to him at an earlier time about what was going to happen so he would understand.
