Pamphlet 1530 John kc 42-1

What do you mean you thought Jesus was crucified on Good Friday?

We have now come to the Preparation Day, the 14th day of Nisan, our Tuesday sunset to Wednesday sunset. This is the day of the crucifixion.

What do you mean you thought Jesus was crucified on Good Friday? Where did you get that idea? (We'll discuss this later in this Gospel of John.) See pamphlet #1071   To learn more log unto Easter in the table of contents to the left of the screen.

We now join Jesus and His disciples at what is known as "The Last Supper". He is about to teach them and set forth an example of how they, as disciples of Christ and soon to be apostles sent forth to carry the gospel, should treat one another.

John 13:1
Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
What an attitude! Don't miss what is being said in this verse. Jesus knew that His hour was come and this was His last supper, and that He was going to be betrayed and tried and crucified. Yet, He did not "run scared" or become "self-absorbed" in the awful set of circumstances that awaited Him.  Instead, He cared for and was concerned about His disciples, both then and now, even the one who had already cut a deal with the sons of Cain to betray Him, and He loved and taught them right "unto the end".

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
