Matthew 26:1-30 Contrast of Characters - Ross P

Here in Chapter 26 we are presented with the beginning of the last 24 hours of the life of Jesus before His trial and crucifixion. The chapter presents contrasts and illustration on the character of people close to Jesus Christ; from the betrayal by Judas to the devotion and worship of Mary, to the fragile commitment of Peter.

Ross asks what it is in the end that decides what side of the Cross do we fall on, and concludes that it is only by repentance of our sin and faith in the Lord Jesus. While Peter repented, Judas only regretted what he did.

Without faith it is impossible to please God.
