Let's Go Back to the Bible

They knew where to find Him

On the night before His crucifixion, Jesus met with His twelve apostles in a large upper room to eat the Passover meal. From there, they would go to the Garden of Gethsemane, but Judas left the upper room gathering before Jesus and the eleven left. How would Judas know where to find them, so that he could betray Jesus? It’s possible that someone told him before he left. But Luke and John tell us the real reason that Judas was able to find Him. John tells us that “Judas…knew the place; for Jesus often met there with His disciples” (John 18:2), “as He was accustomed” (Luke 22:39).

If someone were looking for you, where would they look? What place or places do you frequent? What does the places that you frequent say about you? The place that Jesus “often” went was a place of solitude and prayer. His disciples knew that was a priority for Him. What (and where) do people know is a priority for you? Will that knowledge help them draw closer to Jesus?
