ADDITIONAL MATERIAL D'R
TEACHKH8 Matthew 26 .20-2*. Luke 22.17-
20. John 13.1-3T..
PRIMARY TOPIC-Jesua ami hla disci-
ples Mark 14:12
Jl'NloK TOPIC—Jesus betrayed and de-
I. Judas’ Bargain With the Chief
Priests (vv. 10, 11).
This black crime was committed
Immediately following the beautiful
act of devotion by Mary. The mo-
tive actuating Judas was avarice.
This awful depth of Infamy was not
reached at a bound. Because he did
not master this besetting slh at the
beginning, he was conquered by it.
II. The Last Passover (vv. 12-25).
1. The preparation (vv. 12-10).
In reply to the disciples’ Inquiry
ns to where they should prepare the
I’assover for him, Jesus told them
to go Into the city where they would
meet a man bearing a pitcher of wa-
ter, whom they should follow. In
the house to which they were thus
led would he found a guest chamber
—a large upper room—where they
could make ready the Passover. This
Is an example of Christ’s superhuman
knowledge. He not only knew that
the disciples would meet this man,
but he knew that Judas had bar-
gained for his betrayal.
2. The betrayal announced (vv. 17*
The betrayal was to he by one of
the disciples who was eating with
Jesus. This betrayal had been pre-
dicted, though such prediction did not
interfere with the free act of Judas
In the betrayal. It was because of
this net of treachery being freely
committed by Judas that Jesus pro-
nounced upon him the awful doom—
“Good were It for that man if he had
never been horn.”
3. The bread and the cup instituted
III. The Disciples' Cowardice Fore-
told (vv. 20-31).
In spite of their cowardly tuTnlng
from the Saviour, he assures them
that after his resurrection he would
go before them Into Galilee. Peter
protested against such act of disloy-
alty by the disciples, and assured the
Lord that though all the rest should
forsake him, yet he would not. The
Lord showed him how little he knew
even of his own best resolve, telling
him that on that very night he would
deny him thrice. All the disciples
said the same thing.
IV. The Agony in Gethsemane (vv.
The clear vision of the corning
anguish of the Cross, accentuated by
the utter failure of the diseiples t«>
understand or lwlieve, brought upon
him on lmlescrlbuble anguish of soil,
so ho took Peter, James, and John
and went apart to pray. The cup of
agony was not mere dentil, hut the
sacrlflclal dentil fo^ sin, under the
weight of the world’s guilt.
1. The first prayer (vv. 33-38).
Notwithstanding the darkness of
the hour, he prayed in faith accom-
panied with a willingness to obey.
When he came ami found the three
sleeping Instead of praying, he com-
manded them to watch and pray so
as to be fortified against temptation.
V. The Betrayal and Arrest of
Jesus (vv. 43-52).
1. The sign to the mob (vv. 43-47).
With the basest of hypocrisy Judas
pointed out Jesus to the mob by a
kiss, the sign of love.
2. Jesus forsaken by all (vv. 48-52).
At the sight of the Master’s be-
trayal and arrest, one of his disci-
ples attempted to defend him by re-
sorting to the sword; hut seeing that
Jesus made no attempt at resistance,
they all fled. Their courage failed
them In the hour of trial. IIow little
man knows of his weaknesses until
the crucial hour.
VI. Jesus Before the Sanhedrin (vv
1. Contradictory testimony of false
witnesses (vv. 53-59).
High Priest’s Questions: (vv. 60
(1) “What Is It that these witncFS
against thee?” To this Jesus was
silent, showing that no evidence had
yet been given \\orthy of answer.
(2) “Art thou the Christ?” To
this he definitely replied: “I am”
and quotes a Scripture passage which
they rfecognize us referring to the
Messiah. This claim they answer
with buffeting and the most shame-
VII. Peter Denies Lord (vv. 00-72).
Though Peter loves Jesus, yet in
the hour of supreme trial he falls.
Grievous* ns his sin Is, It Is not like
that of Judas, ills failure was due to
3. Boasting self-defense (vv. 29-31).
2. Lack of watchfulness (v. 37).
3. Neglect of prayer (v. 88).
4. Service In the energy of the
flesh (v. 47).
5. Following Jesus afar off (v. 54).
0. Seek comfprt among the Lord’s
enemies (v. 07; compart Luke 22:55),
7. Open denial (vv. OS-72).
His backsliding really began when
he shrunk from the Crus*.

Ilaz Harlow, who spends much of
his time on Gander creek, has been
