Matthew 26 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

He is betrayed.

No enemies are so much to be abhorred as those professed disciples that betray Christ with a kiss. God has no need of our services, much less of our sins, to bring about his purposes. Though Christ was crucified through weakness, it was voluntary weakness; he submitted to death. If he had not been willing to suffer, they could not conquer him. It was a great sin for those who had left all to follow Jesus; now to leave him for they knew not what. What folly, for fear of death to flee

from Him, whom they knew and acknowledged to be the Fountain of life! (Mt 26:57-68)
