Confession of faith
& baptism Scripture:Mark14：18-26 Sermon title："Sad words"
This scene is the
"Last Supper" with Jesus and his disciples.
Jesus went with his disciples at the house that he had prepared. This is "Passover meal", the last supper with his disciples. Jesus made shocking remarks at the table.
“Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me—one who is eating with me.”(verse 18)
Jesus said clearly that there was a traitor among them. He has spoken very straightly.
The twelve heard the words and were trembling. They were saddened, and one by one they said to him, “Surely you don’t mean me?”(verse 19)
“It is one of the Twelve,” he replied, “one who dips bread into the bowl with me. The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”(verse 20-21)
It was Judas Iscariot who dipped bread into the bowl with Jesus.
It is written shortly before today's biblical passage. Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them. They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over. (verse 10-11).
How did Judas hear
what Jesus spoke of? The other disciples did not think that Judah was strange So he might have been calm.
After this, Jesus did what we call "Lord's Supper" during meals.
Jesus took bread and broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “this is my body.
he took a cup and said “this is my blood of the covenant.
This is an act that points and
represents the Jesus' death on the cross.
It is a declaration of forgiveness of sin (Matthew 26: 28) (Corinthians 1 5: 7).
In our Lord’s Supper ceremony, we pass the cup (glass cup) one by one.
At that time, they drunk from one cup. It was the strength of unity.
At this time Jesus said "until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God." (verse 25). It is Jesus’ covenant of reunion until he has supper with you again in heaven.
Well, we find important things
Judas also accompanied this Lord’s supper, and he had bread and wine.
Jesus didn’t reject Judas being at the same table.
"which is poured out for many," means "all of us" in the expression of Sem language.
Jesus accepted Judas as a friend until the end, made a declaration of forgiveness of sins, promised reunion in heaven.
That Jesus said this way. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.”(verse 21)
Even though it came out of love, how does he not understand?
It sounds a sorrowful scream that he wanted him to understand.
Judas also lives in our hearts. We should not let Jesus say this word
