Video Discussion Q+A

1) Why did the Pharisees want to wait to kill Jesus?

They were afraid of the people in Jerusalem and wanted to wait until after the feast. They thought that there were enough people who would be in Jerusalem that it would start a riot if they arrested Jesus. But, it was God’s plan that Jesus would die on that Friday and he was in control of all the events that would make sure that it would happen. 

2) What did the Woman (Mary) do to Jesus that would show what was about to happen to him?

Mary took some expensive ointment and poured it on Jesus’ head. This showed that she was preparing him for burial. It was more important to realize what was about to happen, for Jesus is far more precious than selling the money to give it to the poor. 

3) When Jesus took the bread and wine at the passover meal, what did he say those things pointed to now?

– Jesus says that the bread and wine that were meant to look back at the Exodus now were to point to him. The bread and the wine were to point to his broken body and his shed blood. This shows us that there is a new and better exodus, passover lamb, forgiveness of sin, deliverance from evil, and it is through belief in Jesus and his work he was about to do on the cross that one can receive these things. 

4) When Jesus took the disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane, what happened there to show that Jesus is obedient to God? 

– Though Jesus said, “Let this cup pass from me” he also said “not my will, but yours be done.” Jesus submitted himself to the Father’s plan to save us, because there was no other way. Jesus passed the test where Adam failed. Adam failed the test of obedience with the test of a tree, in a garden, but Jesus did not. Jesus was faithful fully to God and because of this, we can receive forgiveness from our sins by believing in him. 

5) Why did Jesus let them arrest him so easily? Was he taken off guard? 

– Jesus knew what was about to happen because he knew the scriptures. He knew that he would be betrayed by a close friend. He knew the disciples were going to leave. He knew that he could call down thousands of angels to save him if he wanted. But, he didn’t. He knew that this was God’s plan and Jesus was faithful to the end to his Father’s will. Praise God we have a faithful savior who fulfilled every single part of scripture for us. Let us believe in him and receive the forgiveness he earned through obeying the Father. And let us remember to live for him each day because of his great love for us!
