Biblical Moment: The Events of Holy Wednesday during Holy Week Leading Up to Easter Sunday!

On Holy Wednesday, also known as Spy Wednesday, we remember that Jesus was betrayed by Judas, a clandestine spy among His Disciples. Then, as the Gospel of Luke is written, Satan entered into Judas and he deceived and betrayed Our Lord and Savior.

How many times do we deny, justify or rationalize our thoughts, words, and behaviors?

While I think (and most agree) in a worldly sense I am a really good guy. I was a decent husband and good father too! But I also know in truth, to be honest, there were many times in my life I let folks down too! I am far, far from being perfect but have for the most part done my best. I rejoice in knowing God The Father, The Holy Spirit and Jesus, my Lord and Savior have forgiven me and love me dearly even more so than I love myself. I am blessed with a wonderful family and so many friends who help me celebrate this thing called life!

TROML Baby (an Exclamation of Joy and Gratitude)!!!

The Lenten Season is not yet over! We still have time to prepare; especially within our hearts, souls, and bodies for this solemn opportunity to grow closer to God, ourselves and each other.

The biblical references for the events of Holy Wednesday center around this preparedness. Are we ready to experience the Death, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Jesus?

The Christian Holy Week continues tomorrow with Holy Thursday—wrapping up the last week of the Lenten Season—Palm Sunday (Jesus Enters Jerusalem apparently as a King)—Holy Monday (Cleansing of the Temple)—Holy Tuesday (Parables of the Talents and Ten Virgins)—Holy Wednesday (Betrayal by Judas)—Holy Thursday (Washing of the Feet and the Last Supper)—Good Friday (Passion, Crucifixion, and Death of Jesus on the Cross at Calvary)—Holy Saturday (Jesus Lays in the Tomb on the Sabbath)—and Easter Sunday (Resurrection of Jesus; The Empty Tomb and The Good News).

God Bless and see you on the other side!


Then one of the Twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, “What are you willing to give me if I hand Jesus over to you?” They paid him thirty pieces of silver, and from that time on he looked for an opportunity to hand Him over.”

Matthew 26:14-16


Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went off to the chief priests to hand Jesus over to them. When they heard him they were pleased and promised to pay him money. Then he looked for an opportunity to hand Him over.”—Mark 14:10-11


Now the feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was drawing near, and the chief priests and the scribes were seeking a way to put Jesus to death, for they were afraid of the people. Then Satan entered into Judas, the one surnamed Iscariot, who was counted among the Twelve, and he went to the chief priests and temple guards to discuss a plan for handing Him over to them. They were pleased and agreed to pay him money. He accepted their offer and sought a favorable opportunity to hand Him over to them in the absence of a crowd.”

Luke 22:1-6


Six days before Passover Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. They gave a dinner for Him there, and Martha served, while Lazarus was one of those reclining at table with Him. Mary took a liter of costly perfumed oil made from genuine aromatic nard and anointed the feet of Jesus and dried them with her hair; the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. Then Judas the Iscariot, one of His Disciples, and the one who would betray Him, said, “Why was this oil not sold for three hundred days’ wages and given to the poor?” He said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief and held the money bag and used to steal the contributions. So Jesus said, “Leave her alone. Let her keep this for the day of My Burial. You always have the poor with you, but you do not always have Me.”—John 12:1-8


Assist us mercifully with Thy Help, O Lord God our salvation, that we may enter with joy upon the meditation of those mighty acts through which Thou hast given unto us life and immortality; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”—Methodist Collect for Holy Tuesday
