Moving Forward- Digging Deeper: April 19, 2021


(Read: Matthew 26:6-16) The story of the betrayal of Jesus and death of Judas the betrayer is retold in Acts 1. In Matthew 21 a huge throng of people lined the streets that Jesus and the disciples travelled, on the triumphant entry on Palm Sunday. Some of them spread their cloaks on the road. Others cut branches from the trees and spread those on the road. The people shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” What did Judas think Jesus was doing riding in on a donkey? Judas was a zealot meaning he was looking for the overthrowing of the Romans and freeing the Jews from bondage. What was he hoping for? In Matthew 26:6-13 why did Judas decide to betray Jesus? What was Jesus predicting? Why would talk of His death disturb Judas? [Remember, he was an insurrectionist wanting to see the Roman government overthrown]. What did Jesus tell all His disciples? 26:12). What did Judas do in anger? (vs. 14-16). Today consider your heart attitude about Jesus. Is there any cultural view that you have that does not match the Truth about Jesus?
