It is Wednesday of Passion Week. The video shows the first entry of Satan into Judas Iscariot on Wednesday of Passion Week (Luke 22:1-6, Matthew 26:2-5, Mark 14:1-2, 10-11, John 13:1-5).
Passion Week/Holy Week
Wednesday of Passion Week is the last Wednesday prior to Resurrection Sunday; it is the fourth day of Passion Week.
The aspect of “God’s Sovereign Clock” is key to understanding the two times that Satan entered into Judas Iscariot, and the subsequent betrayal of Christ by Judas. The first entry of Satan into Judas took place on Wednesday of Passion Week (Luke 22:3); the second entry occurred on Thursday following the Passover Meal and the washing of the disciples’ feet (John 13:27).
The day of Satan’s entering into Judas for the purpose of the betrayal of Christ is one of difference of opinion. In Charles Ryrie’s Wednesday comment on Luke 22:3, he states that Satan entered into Judas twice; Dr. Ryrie refers to John 13:27 as being the second occurrence. John 13:2 shows, at the Thursday evening Passover meal, that Satan had already entered into Judas prior to the Passover meal. In keeping with the Ryrie Study Bible outline of Passion Week, I will show Wednesday and Thursday as being the two times that Satan entered Judas.
After the verses for Wednesday of Passion week, other verses will follow that relate to “God’s Hour,” and His sovereignty. Each of the verses will point to the fact that God was in control of every aspect of the crucifixion of Christ, to include the things that led to the crucifixion, and the things which followed. The sovereignty of God rules over the things which still occur in our world (Psalm 103:19).
