1) The Plot

a) Jesus makes what clear to the disciples?

i) Why is the timing with the Passover significant?

ii) Jesus knows what’s going to happen, but the leaders plot. Who’s in charge?

b) Does Jesus care about the poor?

i) Then why rebuke the disciples?

ii) What has the woman done for Jesus?

c) Why does Judas betray Jesus?

i) What does the sum of money given tell us about how far he’d fallen into sin?

ii) How is this a warning to all of us?

d) What preparations had to be made for the Passover?

i) How do the disciples know this?

ii) How does Jesus make provision for them?

(1) Jesus sits as the head of the feast. It’s His job to explain the history to those gathered, but what does He do instead?

(2) How is this received by the disciples?

(a) What warning is given to the one who would betray Him?

(b) What does Judas call Jesus? Why?
