Maundy Thursday – Passover and Last Supper

Holy Week takes a somber turn on Thursday.

From Bethany, Jesus sent Peter and John ahead to the Upper Room in Jerusalem to make the preparations for the Passover Feast. That evening after sunset, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples as they prepared to share in the Passover. By performing this humble act of service, Jesus demonstrated by example how believers should love one another. Today, many churches practice foot-washing ceremonies as a part of their ​Maundy Thursday services.

Then, Jesus shared the feast of Passover with his disciples, saying:

"I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won’t eat this meal again until its meaning is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God." (Luke 22:15-16, NLT)
As the Lamb of God, Jesus was about to fulfill the meaning of Passover by giving his body to be broken and his blood to be shed in sacrifice, freeing us from sin and death. During this Last Supper, Jesus established the Lord’s Supper, or Communion, instructing his followers to continually remember his sacrifice by sharing in the elements of bread and wine (Luke 22:19-20).

Later, Jesus and the disciples left the Upper Room and went to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed in agony to God the Father. Luke’s Gospel says that "his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground" (Luke 22:44, ESV).

Late that evening in Gethsemane, Jesus was betrayed with a kiss by Judas Iscariot and arrested by the Sanhedrin. He was taken to the home of Caiaphas, the High Priest, where the whole council had gathered to begin making their case against Jesus.

Meanwhile, in the early morning hours, as Jesus’ trial was getting underway, Peter denied knowing his Master three times before the rooster crowed.

Thursday’s events are recorded in Matthew 26:17–75, Mark 14:12-72, Luke 22:7-62, and John 13:1-38.

A prayer…

Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior, thank You for You love and passion. For loving us even though we fail You so often. Fallen by nature, dead in our sins, but saved by Your mercy and transformed by Your grace. Help us to walk with You today, feeling Your love and passion along the way. Open our hearts to Your teachings and help us to follow Your example. In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Holy Week Timeline – “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

April 17, 2019

One Walk with Jesus this Holy Wednesday is about prayer, prayer for faith, prayer for hope, and prayer for love…

A thought…

For me, prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed to heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trial as well as joy; finally it is something great, supernatural, which expands my soul and unites me to Jesus.

Holy Wednesday

The Bible doesn’t say what the Lord did on the Wednesday of Passion Week. Scholars speculate that after two exhausting days in Jerusalem, Jesus and his disciples spent this day resting in Bethany in anticipation of Passover.

Just a short time previously, Jesus had revealed to the disciples, and the world, that he had power over death by raising Lazarus from the grave. After seeing this incredible miracle, many people in Bethany believed that Jesus was the Son of God and put their faith in him. Also in Bethany just a few nights earlier, Lazarus’ sister Mary had lovingly anointed the feet of Jesus with expensive perfume.

A verse or two…

And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."
Luke 10:41-42 NKJV

Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
John 20:29 NKJV

A devotion…

“A successful day is one in which you have stayed in touch with Me, even if many things remain undone at the end of the day.”
from Jesus Calling Daily Devotion – Dear Jesus
page 28

Jesus replied: "’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment."
Matthew 22:37-38

A prayer…

Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior, thank You for Your Words of life. For Your blessings. For Your teachings. Help us to slow down and find a quite place to pray and listen. We allow ourselves to get busy and with being busy comes worry. Why, because we don’t make time to pray and rest in You. Busyness weakens our faith and with that we lose hope, and with the loss of hope we find it harder to love. And the loss of love we are separated from You even further. Help us Lord God to pray. Strengthen of faith, feed our hope, and be our example for love. In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Holy Week Timeline – “Blind guides!…For you are like whitewashed tombs—beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people’s bones and all sorts of impurity. Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness…

My One Walk with Jesus reflects on Tuesday of Holy Week and looks at what was to come in song…

Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness…Snakes! Sons of vipers! How will you escape the judgment of hell?” (Matthew 23:24-33)

On Tuesday… Jesus Goes to the Mount of Olives

On Tuesday morning, Jesus and his disciples returned to Jerusalem. They passed the withered fig tree on their way, and Jesus spoke to his companions about the importance of faith.

Back at the Temple, religious leaders were upset at Jesus for establishing himself as a spiritual authority. They organized an ambush with the intent to place him under arrest. But Jesus evaded their traps and pronounced harsh judgment on them, saying:

“Blind guides!…For you are like whitewashed tombs—beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people’s bones and all sorts of impurity. Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness…Snakes! Sons of vipers! How will you escape the judgment of hell?” (Matthew 23:24-33)

Later that afternoon, Jesus left the city and went with his disciples to the Mount of Olives, which sits due east of the Temple and overlooks Jerusalem. Here Jesus gave the Olivet Discourse, an elaborate prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem and the end of the age. He speaks, as usual, in parables, using symbolic language about the end times events, including His Second Coming and the final judgment.

Scripture indicates that this Tuesday was also the day Judas Iscariot negotiated with the Sanhedrin, the rabbinical court of ancient Israel, to betray Jesus (Matthew 26:14-16).

After a tiring day of confrontation and warnings about the future, once again, Jesus and the disciples returned to Bethany to stay the night.

The tumultuous events of Tuesday and the Olivet Discourse are recorded in Matthew 21:23–24:51, Mark 11:20–13:37, Luke 20:1–21:36, and John 12:20–38.

Holy Week Timeline – whatever things are true,… if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy –meditate on these things.

April 15, 2019

Today my One Walk with Jesus continues through Holy Week with reflecting on His actions on Monday, the day after His triumphant entry.

Some thoughts…

‘It’s so hard to be good!’ And so we have to practice. It is hard to become a concert pianist. It is hard to become an expert surgeon. It is hard to become an outstanding ballerina. We have to practice and practice and practice. If this is true of the worldly arts, it is more true of the art of spiritual fidelity.
Mother Mary Francis P.C.C.
from A Time of Renewal: Daily Reflections for the Lenten Season
Daily Catholic Wisdom

When you look the right way–toward what is true, noble, lovely–you are encouraged and strengthened.
Quotation Mark from Jesus Today, page 20.

A verse…

Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things.
Philippians 4:8 NKJV

On Monday… Jesus Clears the Temple

The following morning, Jesus returned with his disciples to Jerusalem. Along the way, he cursed a fig tree because it had failed to bear fruit. Some scholars believe this cursing of the fig tree represented God’s judgment on the spiritually dead religious leaders of Israel. Others believe the symbolism extended to all believers, demonstrating that genuine faith is more than just outward religiosity; true, living faith must bear spiritual fruit in a person’s life.

When Jesus arrived at the Temple, he found the courts full of corrupt money changers. He began overturning their tables and clearing the Temple, saying, "The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves" (Luke 19:46).

On Monday evening Jesus stayed in Bethany again, probably in the home of his friends, Mary, Martha, and Lazarus.

Monday’s events are recorded in Matthew 21:12–22, Mark 11:15–19, Luke 19:45-48, and John 2:13-17.

Holy Week… “The Portal of the Mystery of Hope” by Charles Péguy

April 14, 2019

One Walk with Jesus is about accepting a love we will never understand, and surrendering in kind to it…

A thought…

He who loves becomes the slave of the one he loves.
God did not care to evade this universal law.
And by this love He becomes the slave of the sinner.
The overturning of creation, it’s creation upside-down.
The Creator now depends upon His creature.
. . . As the victim surrenders his hands to the executioner,

So Jesus has abandoned Himself to us.
As the prisoner abandons himself to the prison guard,
So God has abandoned Himself to us.
As the least of the sinners was able to slap Jesus,
And it had to be so,
So the least of the sinners, a miserable, weak creature,
The tiniest of sinners is able to bring to failure,
is able to bring to fulfillment
A hope of God;
The tiniest of sinners is able to uncrown, is able to crown
A hope of God;
The tiniest of sinners is able to uncrown, is able to crown
A hope of God.
And it’s from us that God awaits

The crowning or the uncrowning of one of His hopes.

“The Portal of the Mystery of Hope” by Charles Péguy. From A Sunday of Victory and Suffering
https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2019/04/14/a-sunday-of-victory-and-suffering/

A verse…

All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the sins of us all.
Isaiah 53:6 NLT

Dear Lord God, Abba Father, Jesus my Savior, thank You. Let Your love continue to grow in me and mine until it overwhelms us in every moment of our daily walk. In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
