As passover approached our Messiah’s week was very busy. The day before passover and the night before Yahshua died he went into a room and broke bread and had wine with his disciples. He told us that from then on when we took wine or juice and bread we could remember him. Does your family have a tradition of doing this? Our family makes a big loaf of challah and uses grape juice every friday night before Shabbat starts. It’s a really nice way to help us remember what Yahshua did for us. Does your family have any traditions like this?
Something happened that night though. Judas.. one of the disciples and one of Yahshua’s friends decided to betray his master. Many of the people in government wanted Yahshua dead because everyone was starting to like him. So they were afraid that people would start to follow him (Yahshua) instead of follow the “leaders”.. that made them scared of Yahshua! So, they offered to pay Judas, one of the disciples if he would bring them to Yahshua.
After Yahshua and his disciples finished the meal they went to a garden because Yahshua wanted to pray.

Do you know what he prayed for? He knew he was about to die.. and he was asking YHWH if there was anything that could be done to avoid this. But he finished his prayer with YHWH.. whatever you think needs done, do it. He understood that it wasn’t what HE wanted that mattered, but what YHWH wanted.
While he was praying in the garden a group of men came and guess who was leading them? Judas! He told the men that he would go kiss the man who was Yahshua so they would know who to arrest.. then he went and kissed Yahshua.
