Rediscovering Christmas: Days 21-22: Luke Chapters 21-22

Chapter 21 talks of the Widow's Offering and how Jesus noticed a poor widow offering all she had to live on.

The Signs of the End of the Age are also spoken of in Chapter 21.

Even in Chapter 21 Jesus took the time to teach at the temple and had people coming (even early in the morning) to hear Him.

Chapter 22 is where Judas is in agreement to betray Jesus.

The Last Supper is also something written about in Chapter 22.
Chapter 22 verse 16 says: 16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.


Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives in this Chapter as well.  This is where Jesus asked if it be the Father's will for Him to take the cup from Him, yet He prayed for God's will to be done.

39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.



41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,


42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.


44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,


46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.


Chapter 22 is also where Jesus was arrested and Peter disowns Jesus.  Jesus also had the guards to mock Him and Jesus admitted to being the Son of God before Pilate and Herod.
