Those feasts were all rehearsals (mick raw). They had rehearsed for all those years, and then when the real thing, the event that they had been looking for came along, they missed it.
The LORD had entered Jerusalem through the East gate.
HE entered on a Humble Donkey to fulfill scripture.
In LUK 19 we saw the parable of the nobleman who gave 3 servants a great deal of money.
There was a group of Jews known as the Essenes. They were a group of people who followed the Jewish GOD and faith.
This was the third cup in the Passover meal or seder the celebration.
MAT 26:20-26, When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve.
And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me.” They began to say to him: “Surely you don’t mean me, Lord?”
Jesus replied, “The one who has dipped his hand into the bowl with me will betray me. Then Judas, the one who would betray him, said, “Surely you don’t mean me, Rabbi?” Jesus answered, “You have said so.”
LUK 22:23 And they began to discuss amongst themselves which one of them it might be who was going to do this thing.
24 And there arose also a dispute among them as to which one of them was regarded to be greatest.
As HE prayed HIS sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.
MAR 14:51-52, And a young man followed him, with nothing but a linen cloth about his body; and they seized him, but he left the linen cloth and ran away naked.
HE would be Arrested at Gethsemane. Marched to the house of the former High Priest, Annas; Taken to High Priest Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin; Questioned by Pontius Pilate; Interviewed by Herod; Returned to Pilate; Mistreated by Roman soldiers; Crucified at Golgotha.
Trial #1 = Jesus before the Jewish High Priest, Annas:
JOH 18:12-14, They arrested Jesus and bound Him, and led Him to Annas first; for he was father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.
Trial #2 = Jesus before the Jewish High Priest, Caiaphas:
JOH 18:24, MAT 26:57-63,
PSA 103:12, as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
Trial #3 = Jesus before the Jewish religious council of the Sanhedrin:
LUK22, And they all said, “Are You the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “I am.”
Trial #4 = Jesus before Pilate
- Perverting the nation: They accused him of leading a potential rebellion by gathering people to HIM.
Dismissed. Jesus never promoted the overthrow of the Roman government.
2. Not paying tribute to Caesar: Not true because He miraculously took a coin from the mouth of a fish to pay Caesar.
HE clearly taught to pay the tax of Cesare.
3. Saying that HE is the Messiah, the King of the Jews, in other words, GOD:
True, however, it did not break any Roman law.
Pilate decided Jesus had not broken any Roman law. Which was the correct judgement.
Jesus before Herod
ISA 53:7, He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth.
Trial #6 = Jesus before Pilate again.
ISA 53:5-6, But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. We all like sheep have gone astray, each one has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
ROM 5:12, Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death was passed on to all men, because all sinned.
MAR 15:24-26, They nailed his hands and feet to the cross. The soldiers divided his clothing among themselves by rolling dice to see who would win them. It was nine o’clock in the morning when they finally crucified him. Above his head they placed a sign with the inscription of the charge against him, which read, “This is the King of the Jews.”
