<< Luke 22:22 >>



  • Acts 2:23
    Long ago God planned that Jesus would be handed over to you. With the help of evil people, you put Jesus to death. You nailed him to the cross.
  • 1 Corinthians 15 3-1 Corinthians 15 4
    What I received I passed on to you. And it is the most important of all. Here is what it is. Christ died for our sins, just as Scripture said he would.He was buried. He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as Scripture said he would be.
  • Acts 1:16-25
    Peter said,“ Brothers and sisters, a long time ago the Holy Spirit spoke through David. He spoke about Judas Iscariot. What the Scripture said would happen had to come true. Judas was the guide for the men who arrested Jesus.But Judas was one of us. He shared with us in our work for God.”Judas bought a field with the payment he received for the evil thing he had done. He fell down headfirst in the field. His body burst open. All his insides spilled out.Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this. So they called that field Akeldama. In their language, Akeldama means the Field of Blood.Peter said,“ Here is what is written in the Book of Psalms. It says,“‘ May his home be deserted. May no one live in it.’( Psalm 69:25) The Psalms also say,“‘ Let someone else take his place as leader.’( Psalm 109:8)So we need to choose someone to take his place. It will have to be a man who was with us the whole time the Lord Jesus was living among us.That time began when John was baptizing. It ended when Jesus was taken up from us. The one we choose must join us in telling people that Jesus rose from the dead.”So they suggested the names of two men. One was Joseph, who was called Barsabbas. He was also called Justus. The other man was Matthias.Then the believers prayed. They said,“ Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen.Show us who should take the place of Judas as an apostle. He gave up being an apostle to go where he belongs.”
  • Matthew 27:5
    So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
  • Psalms 69:1-36
    God, save me. My troubles are like a flood. I’m up to my neck in them.I’m sinking in deep mud. I have no firm place to stand. I am out in deep water. The waves roll over me.I’m worn out from calling for help. My throat is very dry. My eyes grow tired looking for my God.Those who hate me without any reason are more than the hairs on my head. Many people who don’t have any reason to be my enemies are trying to destroy me. They force me to give back what I didn’t steal.God, you know how foolish I’ve been. My guilt is not hidden from you.Lord, you are the Lord who rules over all. May those who put their hope in you not be dishonored because of me. You are the God of Israel. May those who worship you not be put to shame because of me.Because of you, people laugh at me. My face is covered with shame.I’m an outsider to my own family. I’m a stranger to my own mother’s children.My great love for your house destroys me. Those who make fun of you make fun of me also.When I weep and go without eating, they laugh at me.When I put on rough clothing to show how sad I am, people make jokes about me.Those who gather in public places make fun of me. Those who get drunk make up songs about me.But Lord, I pray to you. May this be the time you help me. God, answer me because you love me so much. Save me, as you always do.Save me from the trouble I’m in. It’s like slippery mud, so don’t let me sink in it. Save me from those who hate me. Save me from the deep water I’m in.Don’t let the floods cover me. Don’t let the deep water swallow me up. Don’t let the grave close its mouth over me.Lord, answer me because your love is so good. Turn to me because you are so kind.Don’t turn your face away from me. Answer me quickly. I’m in trouble.Come near and save me. Set me free from my enemies.You know how they make fun of me. They dishonor me and put me to shame. You know all about my enemies.They have broken my heart by saying evil things about me. It has left me helpless. I looked for pity, but I didn’t find any. I looked for someone to comfort me, but I didn’t find anyone.They put bitter spices in my food. They gave me vinegar when I was thirsty.Let their feast be a trap and a snare. Let my enemies get what’s coming to them.Let their eyes grow weak so they can’t see. Let their backs be bent forever.Pour out your anger on them. Let them feel what it is like.May their homes be deserted. May no one live in their tents.They attack those you have wounded. They talk about the pain of those you have hurt.Charge them with one crime after another. Don’t save them.May their names be erased from the book of life. Don’t include them in the list of those who do right.I’m in pain. I’m in deep trouble. God, save me and keep me safe.I will praise God’s name by singing to him. I will bring him glory by giving him thanks.That will please the Lord more than offering him an ox. It will please him more than offering him a bull with its horns and hooves.Poor people will see it and be glad. The hearts of those who worship God will be strengthened.The Lord hears those who are in need. He doesn’t forget his people in prison.Let heaven and earth praise him. Let the oceans and everything that moves in them praise him.God will save Zion. He will build the cities of Judah again. Then people will live in them and own the land.The children of those who serve God will receive it. Those who love him will live there.
  • Acts 26:22-23
    But God has helped me to this day. So I stand here and tell you what is true. I tell it to everyone, both small and great. I have been saying nothing different from what the prophets and Moses said would happen.They said the Messiah would suffer. He would be the first to rise from the dead. He would bring the message of God’s light. He would bring it to his own people and to the Gentiles.”
  • Matthew 26:53-54
    Do you think I can’t ask my Father for help? He would send an army of more than 70,000 angels right away.But then how would the Scriptures come true? They say it must happen in this way.”
  • Genesis 3:15
    I will make you and the woman hate each other. Your children and her children will be enemies. Her son will crush your head. And you will bite his heel.”
  • 2 Peter 2 3
    These teachers are never satisfied. They want to get something out of you. So they make up stories to take advantage of you. They have been under a sentence of death for a long time. The God who will destroy them has not been sleeping.
  • Acts 13:27-28
    The people of Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize Jesus. By finding him guilty, they made the prophets’ words come true. These are read every Sabbath day.The people and their rulers had no reason at all for sentencing Jesus to death. But they asked Pilate to have him killed.
  • Psalms 109:6-15
    Appoint an evil person to take my enemies to court. Let him stand at their right hand and bring charges against them.When they are tried, let them be found guilty. May even their prayers judge them.May their days be few. Let others take their places as leaders.May their children’s fathers die. May their wives become widows.May their children be driven from their destroyed homes. May they wander around like beggars.May everything those people own be taken away to pay for what they owe. May strangers rob them of everything they’ve worked for.May no one be kind to them or take pity on the children they leave behind.May their family line come to an end. May their names be forgotten by those who live after them.May the Lord remember the evil things their fathers have done. May he never erase the sins of their mothers.May the Lord never forget their sins. Then he won’t let people remember the names of my enemies anymore.
  • Isaiah 53:1-12
    Who has believed what we’ve been saying? Who has seen the Lord’ s saving power?His servant grew up like a tender young plant. He grew like a root coming up out of dry ground. He didn’t have any beauty or majesty that made us notice him. There wasn’t anything special about the way he looked that drew us to him.People looked down on him. They didn’t accept him. He knew all about pain and suffering. He was like someone people turn their faces away from. We looked down on him. We didn’t have any respect for him.He suffered the things we should have suffered. He took on himself the pain that should have been ours. But we thought God was punishing him. We thought God was wounding him and making him suffer.But the servant was pierced because we had sinned. He was crushed because we had done what was evil. He was punished to make us whole again. His wounds have healed us.All of us are like sheep. We have wandered away from God. All of us have turned to our own way. And the Lord has placed on his servant the sins of all of us.He was treated badly and made to suffer. But he didn’t open his mouth. He was led away like a lamb to be killed. Sheep are silent while their wool is being cut off. In the same way, he didn’t open his mouth.He was arrested and sentenced to death. Then he was taken away. He was cut off from this life. He was punished for the sins of my people. Who among those who were living at that time tried to stop what was happening?He was given a grave with those who were evil. But his body was buried in the tomb of a rich man. He was killed even though he hadn’t harmed anyone. And he had never lied to anyone.The Lord says,“ It was my plan to crush him and cause him to suffer. I made his life an offering to pay for sin. But he will see all his children after him. In fact, he will continue to live. My plan will be brought about through him.After he has suffered, he will see the light of life. And he will be satisfied. My godly servant will make many people godly because of what he will accomplish. He will be punished for their sins.So I will give him a place of honor among those who are great. He will be rewarded just like others who win the battle. That’s because he was willing to give his life as a sacrifice. He was counted among those who had committed crimes. He took the sins of many people on himself. And he gave his life for those who had done what is wrong.”
  • Psalms 55:12-15
    If an enemy were making fun of me, I could stand it. If he were getting ready to oppose me, I could hide.But it’s you, someone like myself. It’s my companion, my close friend.We used to enjoy good friendship at the house of God. We used to walk together among those who came to worship.Let death take my enemies by surprise. Let them be buried alive, because their hearts and homes are full of evil.
  • Psalms 22:1-31
    My God, my God, why have you deserted me? Why do you seem so far away when I need you to save me? Why do you seem so far away that you can’t hear my groans?My God, I cry out in the daytime. But you don’t answer. I cry out at night. But you don’t let me sleep.But you rule from your throne as the Holy One. You are the God Israel praises.Our people of long ago put their trust in you. They trusted in you, and you saved them.They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you, and you didn’t let them down.Everyone treats me like a worm and not a man. They hate me and look down on me.All those who see me laugh at me. They shout at me and make fun of me. They shake their heads at me.They say,“ He trusts in the Lord. Let the Lord help him. If the Lord is pleased with him, let him save him.”But you brought me out of my mother’s body. You made me trust in you even when I was at my mother’s breast.From the time I was born, you took good care of me. Ever since I came out of my mother’s body, you have been my God.Don’t be far away from me. Trouble is near, and there is no one to help me.Many enemies are all around me. They are like strong bulls from the land of Bashan.They are like roaring lions that tear to pieces what they kill. They open their mouths wide to attack me.My strength is like water that is poured out on the ground. I feel as if my bones aren’t connected. My heart has turned to wax. It has melted away inside me.My mouth is dried up like a piece of broken pottery. My tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth. You bring me down to the edge of the grave.A group of sinful people has closed in on me. They are all around me like a pack of dogs. They have pierced my hands and my feet.Everyone can see all my bones right through my skin. People stare at me. They laugh when I suffer.They divide up my clothes among them. They cast lots for what I am wearing.Lord, don’t be so far away from me. You give me strength. Come quickly to help me.Save me from being killed by the sword. Save the only life I have. Save me from the power of those dogs.Save me from the mouths of those lions. Save me from the horns of those wild oxen.I will announce your name to my people. I will praise you among those who are gathered to worship you.You who have respect for the Lord, praise him! All you people of Jacob, honor him! All you people of Israel, worship him!He has not forgotten the one who is hurting. He has not turned away from his suffering. He has not turned his face away from him. He has listened to his cry for help.Because of what you have done, I will praise you in the whole community of those who worship you. In front of those who respect you, I will keep my promises.Those who are poor will eat and be satisfied. Those who seek the Lord will praise him. May their hearts be filled with new hope!People from one end of the earth to the other will remember and turn to the Lord. The people of all the nations will bow down in front of him.The Lord is King. He rules over the nations.All rich people of the earth will feast and worship God. All who go down to the grave will kneel in front of him. Those who cannot keep themselves alive will kneel.Those who are not yet born will serve him. Those who are born later will be told about the Lord.And they will tell people who have not yet been born,“ The Lord has done what is right!”

    The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But how terrible it will be for the one who hands over the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”
  • Acts 4:25-28
    Long ago you spoke by the Holy Spirit. You spoke through the mouth of our father David, who served you. You said,“‘ Why are the nations angry? Why do the people make useless plans?The kings of the earth rise up. The rulers of the earth gather together against the Lord and against his anointed king.’( Psalm 2:1, 2)In fact, Herod and Pontius Pilate met with the Gentiles in this city. They also met with the people of Israel. All of them made plans against your holy servant Jesus. He is the one you anointed.They did what your power and purpose had already decided should happen.
  • Daniel 9:24-26
    “ The Lord has appointed 70‘ weeks’ for your people and your holy city. During that time, acts against God’s law will be stopped. Sin will come to an end. And the evil things people do will be paid for. Then everyone will always do what is right. Everything that has been made known in visions and prophecies will come true. And the Most Holy Room in the temple will be anointed.“ Here is what I want you to know and understand. There will be seven‘ weeks.’ Then there will be 62‘ weeks.’ The seven‘ weeks’ will begin when an order is given to rebuild Jerusalem and make it like new again. At the end of the 62‘ weeks,’ the Anointed King will come. Jerusalem will have streets and a water system when it is rebuilt. But that will be done in times of trouble.After the 62‘ weeks,’ the Anointed King will be put to death. His followers will desert him. And everything he has will be taken away from him. The army of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the temple. The end will come like a flood. War will continue until the end. The Lord has ordered that many places be destroyed.
