THE WEEK THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
DAY 4: HOLY WEDNESDAY
Today is Passion or Holy Wednesday! Most people call this day "A Day of Silence." Some call it "A Day of Anticipation." The reason is that the Bible does not really say or specify what the Lord Jesus did on this day.
The Lord probably remained in Bethany this day with His disciples—resting, praying, and preparing for the Last Supper that will take place the next day. It probably was this day that He had a feast at the house of Simon the leper and was again anointed by Mary (see Matthew 26:6-13).
It probably was the day that Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve disciples of Jesus, and the Jewish authorities also prepared and finalized the plans and terms of Jesus’ betrayal and arrest. Scripture tells us that Judas Iscariot went to the chief priests and the officers of the Temple guard and made arrangements with them on how he might betray Jesus. He collected thirty pieces of silver from them and from that time he sought a good opportunity to betray Jesus (see Matthew 26:14-16; Mark 14:10, 11; Luke 22:3-6). So Sad Judas allowed the devil to use him to betray His Master. This is a lesson to all of us. We must submit ourselves to God, draw near to Him and He will draw near to us. We must resist the devil, and he shall flee from us (James 4:7, 8).
