April 20, 2023

What Jesus taught to be saved and grow in Christ 4-20-23 Article 10 Part 10

Reverence: Psalm 121:1-8 I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from whence shall my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. For the Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun will not smite you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will protect you from all evil; He will keep your soul. The LORD will guard your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forever.

Matthew chapters 26,27,28

Matthew 26:1-5 Passover, and the priests & elders plot to kill Jesus.

And it came about that when Jesus had finished all these words, He said to His disciples, you know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is to be delivered up for crucifixion. The the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered together in the court of the high priest, named Caiaphas; and they plotted together to seize Jesus by stealth, and kill Him. But they were saying, not during the festival, lest a riot occur among the people.

Matthew 26:6-13 Anointing of Jesus for His burial.

Now when Jesus was in Bethany, at the home of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it upon His head as He reclined at the table, But the disciples were indignant when they saw this, and said, Why this waste? For this perfume might have been sold for a high price and the money given to the poor. But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me. For the poor you have with you always, but you do not always have Me. For when she poured this perfume upon My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial. Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the world, what this woman has done shall be spoken of in memory of her.

(Note) The disciples did not understand that Jesus was on His way to be crucified, and she was did it to prepare Him, because they would take Him from the cross to the grave. This they did not understand what He was trying to tell them.

Matthew 26:14-19 Judas gets money for betraying Jesus

Then one of the twelve, named Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests, and said, what are you willing to give me to deliver Him up to you? And they weighed out to him thirty pieces of silver. And from then on he began looking for a good opportunity to betray Him.

(Note) Judas chose money over life eternal with Christ, but chose eternal death in Hades, Judas also would pilfer money from the donations. Jesus did not need to be told, Jesus knows everything that we do even before we do it. His eye is always on His own.

Matthew 26:20-25 Judas’s condemnation from Jesus

Now when evening had come, He was reclining at the table with the twelve, disciples. And as they were eating, He said; Truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me. And being deeply grieved, they each one began to say to Him, surely not I, one began to say to Him, Truly not I, Lord? And He answered and said, He who dipped his hand with me in the bowl is the one who will betray me. The Son of Man is to go, just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born. And Judas, who was betraying Him, answered and said, surely it is not I, Rabbi? He said to him, you have said it yourself.

Matthew 26:26-29 The bread and the cup of Jesus Christ

And while they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing, He broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, Drink from it, all of you; for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.

(Note) This was the very first communion, Christ and His disciples. According to this, it was our asking Jesus to forgive our sins at the communion table, and He would. This stood in contrast of the Old Testament that an animal had to be sacrificed and the blood sprinted on the alter for the forgiveness of sin. But Christ went to the cross to be our sacrifice instead of bulls and lames.

Matthew 26:30-35 Statement of Jesus about Peter to deny Jesus three times.

And after singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Then Jesus said to them, You will all fall away because of Me this night, for it is written, I will strike down the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered. But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee. But Peter answered and said to Him, Even though all may fall away because of You, I will never fall away. Jesus said to him, Truly I say to you that this very knight, before a cock crows, you shall deny Me three times. Peter said to Him, even if I have to die with you, I will not deny You. All the disciples said the same thing too.

Matthew 26:36-56 Jesus arrested in Gethsemane, and tells us to keep watch and pray. Good advise even for today.

Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to His disciples, Sit here while I go over there and pray, And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed. Then He said to them, My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me. And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as thou wilt. And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, So you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour? Keep watching and praying, that you may not enter into temptation; the Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. He went away again a second time and prayed, thus saying, My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Thy will be done. And again He came and found them sleeping , for their eyes were heavy. And He left them again, and went away and prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more. Then He came to the disciples, and said to them, are you still sleeping and taking your rest? Behold the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. Arise and let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand! And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, came up, accompanied by a great multitude with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and the elders of the people. Now he who was betraying Him gave them a sign whom ever I shall kiss, He is the one; seize Him. And immediately he went to Jesus and said, Hail Rabbi! and he kissed Him. And Jesus said to him, Friend, do what you have come for. Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and seized Him. And behold, one of those who were with Jesus reached and drew out his sword, and struck the slave of the high priest, and cut off his ear. Then Jesus said to him, Put your sword back into place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword. Or do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels? How then shall the scriptures be fulfilled, that is must happen this way? At that time Jesus said to the multitudes, Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest Me a against a robber? Every day I used to sit in the temple teaching and you did not arrest Me. But all this has taken place that the Scriptures of the prophets may be fulfilled. Then all the disciples left Him and fled.

(Note) Judas continues with his betrayal of Jesus, All this had to take place like this to fulfill scripture. Even down to the period at the end of a sentence. It was done exactly as it was written in the old testament.

Matthew 26:57-68 The crowd who took Jesus from the garden, to Him to the High priest.
And those who had seized Jesus led Him away to Caiaphas, the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. But Peter also was following Him at a distance as far as the courtyard of the high priest, and entered in, and sat down with the officers to see the outcome. Now the chief priests and the whole council; kept trying to obtain false testimony against Jesus, in order that they might put Him to death; and they did not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. But later on two came forward, and said, this man stated, I am able to destroy the the temple of God and rebuild it in three days. And the high priest stood up and said to Him, do you make no answer? What is it to these men are testifying against you? But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, I adjure you by the living God, that you tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God. Jesus said to him, You have said it yourself; nevertheless I tell you, hereafter you shall see The Son of Man Sitting At The Right Hand Of Power, And Coming On The Clouds Of Heaven. Then the high priest tore his robes, saying, He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? Behold, you have now heard the blasphemy; what do you think? They answered and said, He is deserving of death! Then they spat in His face and beat Him with their fists; and others slapped Him, and said, Prophesy to us, You Christ; who is the one who hit you?

Matthew 26:69-75 Peter denies Christ three times.

Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a certain servant girl came to him and said, You too were with Jesus the Galilean. But he denied it before them all, saying, I do not know what you are talking about. And when he had gone out to the gateway, another servant girl saw him and said to those who were there, this man was with Jesus of Nazareth. And again he denied it with an oath. I do not know the man. And a little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, surely you too are one of them; for the way you talk gives you away. Then he began to curse and swear, I do not know the man! And immediately cock crowed. And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, Before a cock crows, you will deny Me three times. And he went out and wept bitterly.

Matthew 27:1-2 Jesus Delivered to Pilate.

Now when mourning had come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put Him to death; and they bound Him, and led Him away. and delivered Him up to Pilate the governor.

Matthew 27:3-10 Judas feels remorse for betraying Jesus.

Then Judas, who had betrayed Him, saw that He had been condemned, he felt remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, I have sinned by betraying innocent blood. But they said, what is that to us? See to that yourself. And he threw the pieces of silver into the sanctuary and departed; and he went away and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, it is unlawful to put them into the temple treasury, since it is the price of blood. And they counseled together and with the money bought the potter’s field as a burial place for strangers. For this reason that the field has been called the field of blood to this day. Then that which was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled, saying, and they took the thirty pieces of silver , the price of the one whose price had been set by the sons of Israel; and they gave them for the potters field, as the LORD directed Me.

(Note) Do you remember felling remorse for what you have done. Did it change the out come of the punishment? Sometimes the punishment is a better lesson, than just being let go to do it again. With sin it has a natural conclusion, and a spiritual conclusion, we do more of it, or the consequence changes our ways to not do it again.

Matthew 27:11-14 Jesus stands before Pilate.

Now Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews”? And Jesus said to him, It is as you say. And while He was being accused by the chief priests and the elders, He made no answer. Then Pilate said to Him, Do You not hear how many things they testify against you? And He did not answer him with regard to even a single charge, so that the governor was quite amazed.

Matthew 27:15-25 Pilate releases a condemned robber, but condemns Christ to death.

Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to release for the multitude any one prisoner whom they wanted. And they were holding at that time a notorious prisoner called Barabbas. When therefore they were gathered together, Pilate said to them, whom do you want me to release for you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called the Christ? For he knew that because of the envy they had delivered Him up. And while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, have nothing to do with that righteous Man; for last night I suffered greatly in a dream because of Him. But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the multitudes to ask for Barabbas, and to put Jesus to death. But the governor answered and said to them, which of the two do you want me to release for you? And they said, Barabbas. Pilate said to them, then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ? They all said, let Him be crucified! And He said, Why, what evil has He done? But they kept shouting all the more, saying, Let Him be Crucified! And when Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that a riot was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the multitude, saying, I am innocent of this man’s blood; see to that yourselves. And all the people answered and said, His blood be on us and on children!

Matthew 27:26-28 Release of Barabbas the robber.

Then they released Barabbas for them; he delivered Him to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus to the Praetorian guard and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him. And they stripped Him, and put a scarlet robe on Him.

Matthew 27:29-37 Jesus given to the Roman Cohort.
And after weaving a crown of thorns, They put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelled down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” And they spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head. And after they had mocked Him, they took His robe off and put His garments on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him. And as they were coming out, they found a man of Cyrene named Simon, whom they pressed into service to bear His cross. And when they had come to a place called Golgotha, which means place of a skull, they gave Him wine to drink mingled with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink. And when they had crucified Him, they divided up His garments among themselves, casting lots; and sitting down, they began to keep watch over Him there. And they put up above His head the charge against Him which read, “THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

Matthew 27:38-44 Jesus is on the Cross

At that time two robbers were crucified with Him, one on His right and one on His left. And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads, and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking Him, and saying, “He saved others, He cannot save Himself. He is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we shall believe in Him. He Trusts in God; Let Him Deliver Him Now, If He Takes Pleasure In Him; for He said, “I an the Son Of God.” And the robbers also who had been crucified with Him were casting the same insults at Him.
Matthew 27:45-50 The death of Jesus.

Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with loud voice, saying, “ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI? that is, My God, MY God, WHY HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME? And some of those who were standing there, when they heard it, began saying, “This man is calling for Elijah.” And immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sour wine, and put it on a reed. and gave Him a drink. But the rest of them said, let us see whether Elijah will come to save Him. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His Spirit.

(Note) Thank you Jesus for taking my sin to the cross, so when I sin, I can bow my head and ask for forgiveness of that sin. You see, this is what true love looks like, Jesus gave His life for mine, that through Him, we would have eternal life to go into the Millennium to serve Christ and people.

Matthew 27:51-56 The temple veil torn at Christs crucifixion

And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth shook: and the rocks were split, (Old covenant has ended.) and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen a sleep were raised; and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many. Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” And many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, among whom was Mary Magdalene, along with Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

(Note) Even the centurion guard believed after watching Jesus death and resurrection.

Matthew 27:57-65 Jesus taken from the Cross to the tomb.

And when it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it to be given over to him. And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in his own tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away. And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the grave. Now on the next day, which is the one after the preparation, the chief priests and the pharisees gathered together with Pilate, and said, Sir, we remember that when He was still alive that the deceiver said, “After three days I am to rise again.” Therefore, give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, lest the disciples come and steal Him away and say to the people, He has risen from the dead, and the last deception will be worse than the first. Pilate said to them, You have a guard; go make it as secure as you know how. And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.

(Note) Jesus shed no tears in our behalf, but forgave our sins in one act of love, kindness and forgiveness, that we would be made whole.

Christ has Risen from the dead.

Matthew 28:1-8 The tomb is empty.

Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for the Angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning, and his garment as white as snow; and the guards shook for fear of him,and became like dead men. And the Angel answered and said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. And go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

(Note) With the empty tomb, we know He is alive and watching His own to see how they are doing in this life full of sin and shame. Christ does not want any of that in our lives. If we learn from Christ on how to live, our life will be better.

Matthew 28:9-10 Jesus alive talking to His disciples

And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them, and they came up and took hold of His feet and worshiped Him. Then Jesus said to them, Do not be afraid; go and take word to My brethren to leave Galilee, and they shall see Me.

(Note) When Jesus returns for His live saints, at the marriage super of the Lamb, He will take us up to meet Him in the air.

Matthew 28:11-15 Bribery of the soldiers to deceive the people about the truth of Jesus.

Now while they were on their way behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all that had happened. And when they had assembled with the elders and counseled together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers, and said, You are to say, His disciples came by night and stole Him away while we were asleep. and if this should come to the governor’s ears, we will win him over and keep you out of trouble. And they took the money and did as they had been instructed; and the story was widely spread among the Jews, and is to this day.

(Note) People will lie and cheat and cast scorn and guilt when caught in a lie! As did the Chief Priest, the Pharisees, and other religious leaders of the day. Will shower what ever people will take to keep things quiet.

Matthew 28:16-17 Disciple go to Galilee to see the risen Savior

But eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. And when they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful.

(Note) Who had ever risen from the dead, why not be spectacle

Matthew 28:18-20 The great commission by Christ to His disciples to preach the gospel.

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

(Note) Jesus is in complete control, He has the keys to life and death, we all have the same goal to reach, faith in Christ, righteousness and truth and look forward to when we are called up to be with Christ, our savior.

The end of Matthews study
