Answers to last week’s Newsletter Tridium Quiz:

Yes, Jesus had washed the feet of Judas before he betrayed him. Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss. Jesus is arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane within the Mount of Olives. Sanhedrin means “Council” – consisting of 70 Temple Priests. Jesus has two trials – one before the High Priest and the other before Pilate. According to Luke, Jesus is taken to Herod and then returned to Pilate.

Barsabbas means “Son of the Father”. The sons of Simon of Cyrene are Alexander and Rufus. Jesus is crucified at Golgotha. Calvary is the Latin for Golgotha. When Jesus is on the Cross the world is in darkness for 3 hours. According to Luke, an angel appears to Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane.

According to Mark, the first words of Jesus after the resurrection are “Go out to the world and proclaim the Good News”……….and so we must!
