Lots of thoughts, many I need to ponder more, especially concerning Gethsemane and the betrayal (so sad). But for now:
It must have been difficult for Jesus to be around Judas during the Last Supper, knowing that this man that He loved was going to betray Him.
Interesting that this was the first time the disciples were instructed to pray in Christ’s name- I’d never realized that before. “The name of Jesus Christ was to be thenceforth the divinely established talisman by which the powers of heaven could be invoked to operate in any righteous undertaking.” I wonder if this is because previous to this point, they were praying to Jehovah, God of the Old Testament- or Christ. Were they praying to Him because Heavenly Father wasn’t accessible to them without the Atonement? So once the Atonement was performed, we could pray to Heavenly Father through the intercession of Christ? Or was it just Christ’s job at the time? (I have no idea if this is right, just thinking in type.)
