January 2, Luke 22:1-13 Free will and destiny

Actually looking at two items today, let's first look at Judas. Tradition paints him as an evil greedy thief, John alludes in his gospel that Judas kept the money bag and dipped into it. The only problem here is that according to The Law no-one can be convicted without at least two witnesses and this is only accounted by John. This creates a bit of a quandary, the Word is inerrant and The Law is The Law, so I won't convict Judas without more evidence. This greed is supposed to be the motive for Judas betraying Jesus yet that too can't be confirmed. We don't know why he did what he did, this we do know. Jesus was destined for the cross, in some way shape and form, on the Passover, The Lamb of God was going to be slain for the sins of the world. Judas still had a free choice, and what he did was evil, but it wasn't Judas who caused Jesus to be crucified, it was me and you.  This next section I am amazed by, in Jerusalem on the Passover there could be as many as 1 million people living in tent camps all around the city. From a tourism standpoint, if you have a room large enough to hold a party for the feast it will probably be reserved well in advance. Jesus sends two disciples in to town and this homeowner actually has a vacant room to be used. There is no evidence that this was pre arraigned by Jesus. Scripture doesn't tell us but I think that maybe the Holy Spirit or an angel came to this man and made the reservations.
