I. Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew near.
A. The Nature of Narrative.
B. Holy Week Timeline.
II. The Chief Priest and Scribes Look For Ways To Kill Jesus.
A. Jesus had taught against them.
1) Luke 20:1-8 One day, as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came up and said to him, "Tell us by what authority you do these things, or who it is that gave you this authority." He answered them, "I also will ask you a question. Now tell me, was the baptism of John from heaven or from man?" And they discussed it with one another, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will say, 'Why did you not believe him?' But if we say, 'From man,' all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was a prophet." So they answered that they did not know where it came from. And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things."
2) Luke 20:45-47 And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation."
B. They never sought truth.
Luke 20:19-20 The scribes and the chief priests sought to lay hands on him at that very hour, for they perceived that he had told this parable against them, but they feared the people. So they watched him and sent spies, who pretended to be sincere, that they might catch him in something he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of the governor.
III. Then Satan entered into Judas.
A. Satan
1) Σατανᾶς (satanas) “adversary (one who opposes another in purpose or act)”
2) Luke 10:17-19 The seventy-two returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in your name!"And he said to them, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.
3) Luke 4:12-13 And Jesus answered him, "It is said, 'You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'"And when the devil had ended every temptation, he departed from him until an opportune time.
B. Judas called Iscariot.
1) The name Judas (Ὶούδας) is a Greek rendering of the Hebrew name Judah (יהודה, Yehûdâh, Hebrew for "God is thanked"), which was an extremely common name for Jewish men during the first century AD, due to the renowned hero Judas Maccabeus.
2) Judas's epithet Iscariot (Ὶσκάριωθ or Ὶσκαριώτης), which distinguishes him from the other people named Judas in the gospels, is usually thought to be a Greek rendering of the Hebrew phrase איש־קריות, (Κ-Qrîyôt), meaning "the man from Kerioth"
C. One Of The Twelve.
1) He had the best Teacher possible.
2) He had the best possible peers.
3) 2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?-unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
IV. Plans Are Made.
A. Judas is the 1st to ask for money. “And they were glad, and agreed to give him money” John 12:5-6 “Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?" He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it.
B. The conspiracy is buttoned up. “sought an opportunity to betray him to them in the absence of a crowd.”
