A - PRELUDE TO HOLY WEEK
(JOHN 11:55 – 12:50)

1. Jesus anointed in Bethany
(John 11:55 – 12:8)
55   And the Jews� passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.
56   Then sought they for Jesus, and spake among themselves, as they stood in the temple, What think ye, that he will not come to the feast?
57   Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a commandment, that, if any man knew where he were, he should shew it, that they might take him.

The Passover was the main feast in the Old Testament, celebrating the rescue of the Hebrews from divine wrath. Thereby, they lived under the protection of the divine Lamb prepared for them. They deserved to die, but faith saved them.
Annually the Jews would visit Jerusalem to thank God for guarding them from his wrath. There they slew myriads of lambs and ate them. Many used to go to Jerusalem beforehand to be cleansed by repentance and be ready to identify with the Lamb of God. If anyone had touched a corpse he had to observe a series of cleansings for seven days, to deserve entry into God’s temple (Numbers 19:11).At this season the pilgrims inquired about Jesus, the Nazarene, "Will he come or will they not see him?" After all, they knew that the religious Council had secretly decided to condemn him to death. They asked many in the nation to spy on Jesus, and inform them that they had seen him somewhere, to seize him. The jaws of death were open to swallow Jesus.
