Just as with Christmas, Easter, is a pivotal reminder of what God sent His Son to do for us. While I can write many things about the betrayal, death, crucifixion of our Lord and Savior Jesus, it is the words of the Bible that speak most to so many. Join me over the next few days as we learn about the events that lead to Christ’s death on the cross and the glory revealed and given to us in His resurrection.
Judas Agrees to Betray Jesus
22 Now the Festival of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching, 2 and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people. 3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. 4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus. 5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money. 6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
