Passover

 It is in the celebration of the century’s old, Biblically mandated Jewish tradition of the Passover meal that we find Jesus and His Disciples gather for the last time prior to His execution. How disturbing it must have been for the Disciples to realize that Jesus was indeed going to die and that one of them had already planned to identify Him to the authorities in order to facilitate His capture. Panic and fear, fueled by the loss of their great leader in whom they had left everything to follow, must have filled the room like a fog, blinding the mind to anything but personal distress. Perhaps the thought of getting out of town immediately would have filled their minds. If He was going to be captured and executed, what about their own future? So it must not have been a friendly, joyous, personally rewarding Passover meal that they were so accustom to celebrating. In all of this confusion, we find these words of Scripture just as the meal was ending and they were preparing to leave the table after eating and talking with Jesus that fateful night.

"And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives." Matthew 26:30

Ever wonder what they might have sung? History tells us that in that period of time, lyrics from the Book of Psalms were utilized. Maybe it was one of the following passages:

"Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast." Psalm 57:1

Or

"For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock." Psalm 27:5

Or

"The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. 8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. 9 O fear the LORD, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him." Psalm 34:7–9

What passage from the Book of Psalms do you think they might have sung? What reading from Psalms would you choose to encourage yourself or a friend in uncertain circumstances? Open your Bible and read some of the Psalms; it will be valuable in all seasons of your life.
