A SHORT COMMENT ON MATTHEW 26:24

I was reading Matthew 26 beginning in verse 17 where it starts talking about the Lord’s Supper. The Lord Jesus had just informed His disciples that one of them would betray Him. Something in verse 24 caught my attention. Here is verse 24:

“The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.” Matt. 26:24

THE INSCRIPTION OVER JESUS’ HEAD AT THE CROSS

I want to talk a little bit about the following verses. I wish I had thought of this before Easter, but I didn’t.

John 19:16-22

Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led [him] away.

And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called [the place] of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

And Pilate wrote a title, and put [it] on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

CUTTING THE COVENANT

This is my first attempt at posting a blog. The source of this information comes from the website written at the bottom. The comments are my own. Whether or not you agree with my comments is your prerogative. I realize that there is no Scripture, so you will have to do your own homework. It will give you a good reason to read your Bible. Anyway, here goes.

A series of events are set into motion when two people decide they want to “cut the covenant.” It is referred to as the blood covenant ceremony and is considered a most serious and solemn event.
