Jun. 2. Preparation for the Passover

Mt. 26:17-19; Mk. 14:12-16; Lk. 22:7-13; Jn. 13:1

On Thursday, Jesus began to prepare for His last Passover. This would be observed on Friday morning (after 6:00 Thursday evening, the beginning of the Jewish day). Since He had no home, He sent Peter and John to secure a place for them to observe this feast.

Jesus instructed them to go into the city and follow a man carrying a pitcher of water. They were to follow him into whatever house he entered and to tell the master of the house that the Teacher says, “Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”

The master of the house would show them a large, furnished upper room that they were to prepare for the Passover.
