The Last Supper

TEXT: MATTHEW 26:17-30

Chronologically, the Last Supper follows the betrayal of Jesus by disciple Judas Iscariot. Interestingly, Matthew - a former tax collector at the time he was called to be a disciple by Jesus - was the only one in the Gospels to give an exact amount to Jesus' betrayal - 30 pieces of silver.

Judas Iscariot betrays Jesus

TEXT: MATTHEW 26:14-16

Jesus and the disciples are still in Bethany, where Mary anoints Jesus with an alabaster box full of precious perfume.

Jesus anointed at Bethany


Jesus begins his final  journey toward the Cross with a trip to Bethany, where he will eat a meal and be anointed for his coming burial.

Matthew and Mark say Jesus ate at the home of Simon the Leper, father to Judas Iscariot (REFERENCE: John 12:4), and John suggests it MIGHT have been at the home of Lazarus, Martha and Mary.

The plot to kill Jesus


Now that Jesus had ended his parables and visions for the future of mankind and the Kingdom of Heaven, he now enters the final phase of his life – the Jewish leaders' plot to kill him.
