John 12:1 (3:32.362)
12 Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany,
— “Matthew 26:6 (3:40.181) – 6 And when Jesus was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper,”
where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. –“Jesus is in Bethany about 2 miles from Jerusalem”
–“A Leper is an outcast and it was illegal to go into a house of a Leper or even touch a Leper. They were required to live outside the city, apart from everyone. They had to cover their faces and had to cry out “Unclean, Unclean, Unclean” all the time.”
John 11:1-3, 17, 38-39, 43
The Death of [Lazarus]
11Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the town of Mary and her sister Martha.
2 It was thatMarywho anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
3 Therefore the sisters sent to Him, saying, “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick.”
I Am the Resurrection and the Life
17 So when Jesus came, He found that he had already been in the tomb four days.
Lazarus Raised from the Dead
38 Then Jesus, again groaning in Himself, came to the tomb. It was a cave, and a stone lay against it. 39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.”
43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (7:11.096)
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
John 12:2 (7:49.900)
[ Martha The Server]
2 There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. –“This was a different time when Martha complained in Luke 10:38-42 about Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus worshiping.”
[Pause Audio now and read Luke 10:38-42 (8:14.711) ]
—” 38 Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”41 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.””
(10:30.000) 3 Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, –“Pastor explains what Spikenard is and how much it costs.”
anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. –“Pastor talks”
[Judas the Betrayer]
5 “Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” 6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it. –“Judas stole money for himself”
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15 and said, “What are you willing to give me if I deliver Him to you?” And they counted out to him thirty pieces of silver. 16 So from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.
John 12:7 (13:43.900)
Judas is about to Betray Jesus
7 But Jesus said, “Let her alone; she has kept this for the day of My burial.8 For the poor you have with you always, but Me you do not have always.” –“We see that Judas is going to betray Jesus.”
The Jewish Leaders; the hypocrites.
9 Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. –“The powerful testimony of Lazarus, who has allowed God to work in his life has spread. There isn’t anymore more powerful than that.
10 But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, 11 because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.
Matthew 23:1-4, 5 (16:32.758)
23 Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to His disciples, 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat.3 Therefore whatever they tell you to observe,that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. –“In other words, their Hypocrites”
5 But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments.6 They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues,7 greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’ –“Master Teacher”
