Luke Chapter 22

Luke 22

1Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

2And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; for they feared the people.

3Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

4And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray him unto them.

5And they were glad, and covenanted to give him money.

6And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them in the absence of the multitude.

7Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

8And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.

9And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

10And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in.

11And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

12And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.

13And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.

14And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.

15And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:

16For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

17And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

18For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

19And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

20Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

21But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table.

22And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed!

23And they began to enquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

24And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.

25And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.

26But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

27For whether is greater, he that sitteth at meat, or he that serveth? is not he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth.

28Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

29And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me;

30That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

31And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

32But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

33And he said unto him, Lord, I am ready to go with thee, both into prison, and to death.

34And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.

35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

37For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

38And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

39And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

40And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

41And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

44And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

45And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

47And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him.

48But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?

49When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?

50And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear.

51And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

52Then Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, which were come to him, Be ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and staves?

53When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.

54Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.

55And when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the hall, and were set down together, Peter sat down among them.

56But a certain maid beheld him as he sat by the fire, and earnestly looked upon him, and said, This man was also with him.

57And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

58And after a little while another saw him, and said, Thou art also of them. And Peter said, Man, I am not.

59And about the space of one hour after another confidently affirmed, saying, Of a truth this fellow also was with him: for he is a Galilaean.

60And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.

61And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

62And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

63And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him.

64And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

65And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.

66And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,

67Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

68And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

69Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.

70Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.

71And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

  1. Peter and Judas Iscariot both had something in common; betrayal. Peter betrayed Jesus so that he could save himself from being ridiculed and mocked. He was unwilling to pay a small price of being a follower of God and let his pride rise above causing everything he ever had with Jesus to be destroyed. On the other hand you had Judas who cared about the material things in life. A measly 30 pieces of silver was traded for the life of Christ. Here we have two men that were closer to Jesus than we could be today. Walking and communing with him day to day, knowing his thoughts, seeing his hurts and pains, watching him do the miraculous and yet pride and money squash it all. Satan will do everything in his power to be lord in our lives. What are we allowing in our lives to cause betrayal to Jesus? In the end, do these things really matter? Will it benefit us in the long run? Most definitely not! Death and an eternal hell will be our reward. What a sick feeling it gives me that we sometimes even give a kiss of betrayal to God, which is more than a slap in the face. A kiss was meant for showing love, reverence and respect not hate, envy or betrayal.
    Lord fix my heart today! I want it to have a pure love for you and your ways. Let my pride and flesh be drowned and cut out so that you can work and have your way in my life!
    I want to BE CHURCH!

  2. 54Then took they him, and led him, and brought him into the high priest’s house. And Peter followed afar off.

    Peter told Jesus that he would go with him to prison or even the grave, yet when it came down to the real test the ESV version says that he followed him at a distance.

    The farther away we try to follow Jesus the more likely we will deny him.

    Lord, help us to follow near to you.

  3. 22-31
    Peters denial shook the fishermans as nothing else had. In no other situation do we see Peter in tears yet the denial was a temporary failure. And it served always to remind Peter that he must rely on the Lord rather than himself Failures do hurt. But remeber how great the failure you can turn back and learn from your mistakes..

  4. 57And he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not.

    Do not deny the Power of God that is within you. You are a child of the Living God!

  5. 42Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

    43And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

    If I stay in His will He will provide the strength that is needed.

  6. 46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

    We must be in daily prayer and Bible reading so are not tempted or deceived.

  7. And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.”

    Satan, at one time or another, has desired to sift each of us as wheat. But Thanks be to God, that Jesus has interceeded for us! And that our faith failed not. Once we have been through the trail and test and have come out victorious, it’s time for us to help and strengthen a brother or sister in need.

  8. 46 “Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation.” (NLT)

    Temptaions are around us daily so inturn we can’t fall asleep spiritually, but be alert and keep a continuous prayer life talking to God, asking Him to keep us from temptions of this world.

  9. 3Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.

    There are many great things to feast on in this chapter I found it very interesting that it says that states Satan entered into Judas. In the moments of his betrayal he was filled with a spirit but it was not the Spirit of the Holy Ghost. Verse 6 says that he promised to betray Jesus when he was away from the multitude. They knew if the people were around it would be hard to accuse him of anything wrong.

    In this chapter we do find two men that walked daily with the Lord and both of them find themselves in a bad place. Judas betrays Jesus and later kills himself. Peter denys Jesus and later in verse 61 the Lord looked upon Peter and he came to himself and remembered Jesus told him that he would deny him. Then he went out weeping. Two men in bad places yet one was big enough to weep in repentance. We must all take heed to Christ warning “…rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation..”

  10. This chapter is one of longsuffering, peace and Love. God was well aware of what was about to happen, yet he kept himself when he declared he would be betrayed. He could have stopped everything and change everything, yet he prayed so hard he bled. He showed such peace and love when he humbly healed the man’s ear. We should all strive for the same longsuffering, peace and Love, for none of us are worthy of salvation, which that alone should compel us Be-Church. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  11. V61 NIV “The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. V62 “And he (Peter) went outside and wept bitterly.”
    The predicted betrayal had happened.
    The look from Christ that could have so easily shamed Peter. Instead it was a look that spurred Peter to repentance. Surely, it was a look of compassion and love.
    Thank you Lord for second chances!

  12. THE SIFTER

    31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

    32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

    A sifter is a type of separator that keeps impurities out of the valued ingredient. Satan would desire to sift us as to separate us from our GOD and his purity. Sifting is a sign of uncertain times everything is moving and only what remains with the original will remain. Life and circumstances may shake us up drastically at times; but we must remain pure to our faith in GOD.

  13. Jesus knowing the outcome of the things that were going to transpire was still able to sit and dinner and eat with his betrayer. Lord help us to not allow the things people do or don’t do effect us so much that we have to bring attention to it, and in essence let them gain victory. Help us to keep our focus on you, and not be distracted by their actions or non actions so that we may sit with sinners and prodigals and truly BE CHURCH to them.

  14. 35And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

  15. Deny – to affirm that one has no acquaintance or connection with someone.

    Before the cock crowed Peter denied Jesus thrice… he not only denied that he had acquaintance with him he denied any connection with him, his teaching, after he sat at the table with Judas in the same room, after the swordfight in the garden… after all of this Peter denies him.

    When you deny Jesus you deny his word, his teaching, his love, his blood, and his body.

    Don’t deny Him!

  16. Peter and John were sent by Jesus to prepare the passover, Judas was sent by the devil to prepare the Passover (though the devil didn’t realize what he was doing.) What the enemy meant for evil, God used for good. The Word can’t be stopped!

  17. v 61″ The Lord turned and looked straight at
    Peter.Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him:
    Before the rooster crows today you will disown me three times.
    v62 and he went outside and wept bitterly.

    You will hate the very thing that cause you to turn your back on Jesus.
    Judas did and Peter wept bitterly.

  18. Judas allow Satan to enter into him and control him. He betrayed the Lord for nothing more than money. Judas had been with Jesus and this still happened. We must be ever watchful that we do not allow Saten to influence us to betray the trust that Jesus has put in us to spread his word.
