Matthew 26:1-16

  1. Note the difference between the prophecy of Christ in verses 1, 2 and the plans of the Jewish religious leaders in verses 3-5.
    Whose word, in fact, prevailed, and why?
    Cf. Acts 2:23; Ps. 33:10, 11.
  2. In verses 6-16 consider the contrast between the action of Mary, anointing Christ, and Judas sealing Him.
    How does this demonstrate the truth of Luke 2:35b?
    What were the motives behind these different actions?
