Matthew 26:1-5

1 When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, 2 “As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.”

3 Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas, 4 and they schemed to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him. 5 “But not during the festival,” they said, “or there may be a riot among the people.”

One response to “Matthew 26:1-5

  1. He knew His arrest was imminent, but He continued His mission of teaching the people and training the disciples right to the end.

    The leaders were planning murder, but they schemed it to not interrupt the festival because they wanted the cooperation and approval of the masses. Their use of religion and law as a yoke to enslave is so apparent and sickening and is meant as a warning to us to be ministers of compassion and love and to not fall into the trap that Satan used to bind these leaders.
