John 12, The Passover, a Jewish holy day, was near, and many country people arrived in Jerusalem. The people wanted to see Jesus, and they asked each other, “What do you think? Will he come for the Passover?” Meanwhile the chief priests and Pharisees had publicly announced that anyone seeing Jesus must report him immediately so that they could arrest him. Six days before the Passover, Jesus arrived in Bethany where Lazarus was the man he had brought back to life. A banquet was prepared in Jesus’ honor. Martha served, and Lazarus sat at the table with him. Then Mary took a jar of costly perfume made from essence of nard, and anointed Jesus’ feet with it and wiped them with her hair. But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples the one who would betray him said, “That perfume was worth a fortune. It should have been sold and the money given to the poor.” Not that he cared for the poor, but he was in charge of the disciples’ funds and often dipped into them for his own use! Jesus replied, “Let her alone. She did it in preparation for my burial. You can always help the poor, but I won’t be with you very long.” When the ordinary people of Jerusalem heard of his arrival, they flocked to see him and also to see Lazarus the man who had come back to life again. Then the chief priests decided to kill Lazarus too, for it was because of him that many of the Jewish leaders had deserted and believed in Jesus as their Messiah. ONE DAY SOON, THE JEWISH NATION WILL ACCEPT JESUS AS THEIR MESSIAH WHEN THEY SEE HIS PIERCED HANDS! Revelation 1:7-8 See! He is arriving, surrounded by clouds; and every eye shall see him yes, and those who pierced him.[a] And the nations will weep in sorrow and in terror when he comes. Yes! Amen! Let it be so! “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the Ending of all things,” says God, who is the Lord, the All Powerful One who is, and was, and is coming again!*
