Jesus & The Sanhedrin
by Tiffany Bullington
What a beautiful, gut-wrenching day. The day before Jesus’ last gathering with His friends, He goes to a dinner party. Mary, Jesus’ dear friend Lazarus’ sister, pours out a fortune onto the feet of Jesus–anointing Him with precious perfume as an overflow of her love for Him. And, at the very same dinner, Judas snuck away to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. One of His closest friends made plans to deliver Him to the enemy.
Even the ugliest parts of the Crucifixion and Resurrection were prophesied. It all played out hundreds of years earlier in the prophecies of Israel; even down to the dollar amount Jesus was sold for. I pray that you see today that our God is a God of details; there is no thing left unsaid and unused. Whatever you are in the midst of today will be used and it will tell one story–Our God leaves no thing and no one behind, it all gets used for His glory. Even the not so pretty parts of life are all His.
