place
Genesis 22:2-4
2
He said, "Take now your son, your only son, whom you love, Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I will tell you."
3
So Abraham rose early in the morning and saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him and Isaac his son; and he split wood for the burnt offering, and arose and went to the place of which God had told him.
4
On the third day Abraham raised his eyes and saw the place from a distance.
Matthew 21:1-46
1
When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,
2
saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied [there] and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me.
3
"If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."
4
This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5
"SAY TO THE DAUGHTER OF ZION, 'BEHOLD YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU, GENTLE, AND MOUNTED ON A DONKEY, EVEN ON A COLT, THE FOAL OF A BEAST OF BURDEN.'"
6
The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,
7
and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on the coats.
8
Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road.
9
The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting, "Hosanna to the Son of David; BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Hosanna in the highest!"
10
When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, "Who is this?"
11
And the crowds were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee."
12
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.
13
And He said to them, "It is written, 'MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER'; but you are making it a ROBBERS' DEN."
14
And [the] blind and [the] lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15
But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were shouting in the temple, "Hosanna to the Son of David," they became indignant
16
and said to Him, "Do You hear what these [children] are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes; have you never read, 'OUT OF THE MOUTH OF INFANTS AND NURSING BABIES YOU HAVE PREPARED PRAISE FOR YOURSELF'?"
17
And He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and spent the night there.
18
Now in the morning, when He was returning to the city, He became hungry.
19
Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it, "No longer shall there ever be [any] fruit from you." And at once the fig tree withered.
20
Seeing [this], the disciples were amazed and asked, "How did the fig tree wither [all] at once?"
21
And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will happen.
22
"And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."
23
When He entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to Him while He was teaching, and said, "By what authority are You doing these things, and who gave You this authority?"
24
Jesus said to them, "I will also ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these things.
25
"The baptism of John was from what [source], from heaven or from men?" And they [began] reasoning among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him?'
26
"But if we say, 'From men,' we fear the people; for they all regard John as a prophet."
27
And answering Jesus, they said, "We do not know." He also said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.
28
"But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go work today in the vineyard.'
29
"And he answered, 'I will not'; but afterward he regretted it and went.
30
"The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, 'I [will], sir'; but he did not go.
31
"Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Truly I say to you that the tax collectors and prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you.
32
"For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him; but the tax collectors and prostitutes did believe him; and you, seeing [this], did not even feel remorse afterward so as to believe him.
33
"Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who PLANTED A VINEYARD AND PUT A WALL AROUND IT AND DUG A WINE PRESS IN IT, AND BUILT A TOWER, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey.
34
"When the harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce.
35
"The vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third.
36
"Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them.
37
"But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
38
"But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance.'
39
"They took him, and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
40
"Therefore when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-growers?"
41
They said to Him, "He will bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent out the vineyard to other vine-growers who will pay him the proceeds at the [proper] seasons."
42
Jesus said to them, "Did you never read in the Scriptures, 'THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER [stone]; THIS CAME ABOUT FROM THE LORD, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES '?
43
"Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it.
44
"And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust."
45
When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them.
46
When they sought to seize Him, they feared the people, because they considered Him to be a prophet.
Matthew 26:1-27
1
When Jesus had finished all these words, He said to His disciples,
2
"You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man is [to be] handed over for crucifixion."
3
Then the chief priests and the elders of the people were gathered together in the court of the high priest, named Caiaphas;
4
and they plotted together to seize Jesus by stealth and kill Him.
5
But they were saying, "Not during the festival, otherwise a riot might occur among the people."
6
Now when Jesus was in Bethany, at the home of Simon the leper,
7
a woman came to Him with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume, and she poured it on His head as He reclined [at the table].
8
But the disciples were indignant when they saw [this], and said, "Why this waste?
9
"For this [perfume] might have been sold for a high price and [the money] given to the poor."
10
But Jesus, aware of this, said to them, "Why do you bother the woman? For she has done a good deed to Me.
11
"For you always have the poor with you; but you do not always have Me.
12
"For when she poured this perfume on My body, she did it to prepare Me for burial.
13
"Truly I say to you, wherever this gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her."
14
Then one of the twelve, named Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests
15
and said, "What are you willing to give me to betray Him to you?" And they weighed out thirty pieces of silver to him.
16
From then on he [began] looking for a good opportunity to betray Jesus.
17
Now on the first [day] of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?"
18
And He said, "Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, 'The Teacher says, "My time is near; I [am to] keep the Passover at your house with My disciples."'"
19
The disciples did as Jesus had directed them; and they prepared the Passover.
20
Now when evening came, Jesus was reclining [at the table] with the twelve disciples.
21
As they were eating, He said, "Truly I say to you that one of you will betray Me."
22
Being deeply grieved, they each one began to say to Him, "Surely not I, Lord?"
23
And He answered, "He who dipped his hand with Me in the bowl is the one who will betray Me.
24
"The Son of Man [is to] go, just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born."
25
And Judas, who was betraying Him, said, "Surely it is not I, Rabbi?" Jesus said to him, "You have said [it] yourself."
26
While they were eating, Jesus took [some] bread, and after a blessing, He broke [it] and gave [it] to the disciples, and said, "Take, eat; this is My body."
27
And when He had taken a cup and given thanks, He gave [it] to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you;

The LORD is God, and He has given us light; Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
Isaiah 53:4-10
4
Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5
But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being [fell] upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
6
All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.
7
He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.
8
By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered That He was cut off out of the land of the living For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke [was due]?
9
His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a rich man in His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
10
But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting [Him] to grief; If He would render Himself [as] a guilt offering, He will see [His] offspring, He will prolong [His] days, And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.
