Friday’s answers

Andrei, Teletext and J Bloggs posed the questions for which they get my thanks.

Should they have stumped us all they can claim a virtual batch of Anzac biscuits by leaving the answers below.

  1. Andrei says:

    (1) Which of Jesus’ disciples cut off the ear of the high priest’s servant in an attempt to protect Jesus from being taken as a prisoner?

    St Peter

    (2) What was this servant’s name?

    Malchos

    Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s slave and cut off his right ear. The slave’s name was Malchos. Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup which the Father has given me?”

    (3) What happened to the money Judas Iscariot received for betraying Jesus?

    At that time, when Judas, his betrayer, saw that he was condemned, he repented and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders, saying, “I have sinned in betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.” And throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; and he went and hanged himself. But the chief priests, taking the pieces of silver, said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, since they are blood money.” So they took counsel, and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. Therefore that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day.

    (4) Who provided the tomb for Jesus’ burial?

    Joseph of Arimathea

    At that time, Joseph of Arimathea, a respected member of the council, who was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. And Pilate wondered if he were already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he was already dead. And when he learned from the centurion that he was dead, he granted the body to Joseph. And he bought a linen shroud, and taking him down, wrapped him in the linen shroud, and laid him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.

    (5) Why are these questions timely?
    This Week is Holy Week according to the reckoning of the Eastern Church – today is Good Friday for about half of the world’s Christians
