SUMMARY AND LIFE APPLICATION:
MATTHEW 26:17-30: VERSE BY VERSE STUDY
The Plan to kill Jesus / Lord's Supper
PART 14: v30: And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
V30: The Mount of Olives was Jesus' favorite place to go and commune with God. The garden of Gethsemane is on the Mount of Olives.
Further Study v30: And when they had sung an hymn,.... The "Hallell", which the Jews sang on the night of the passover; for the passover. This "Hallell", or song of praise, consisted of six Psalms, the 113th, 114th, 115th, 116th, 117th, and 118th: now this they did not sing all at once, but in parts. Just before the drinking of the second cup and eating of the lamb, they sung the first part of it, which contained the 113th and 114th Psalms; and on the fourth and last cup, they completed the "Hallell", by singing the rest of the Psalms, beginning with the 115th Psalm, and ending with the 118th; and said over it, what they call the "blessing of the song", which was Psalm 145:10. Now the last part of the "Hallell", Christ deferred to the close of his supper; there being many things in it pertinent to him, and proper on this occasion, particularly Psalm 115:1, and the Jews themselves say, that "the sorrows of the Messiah" are contained in this part.
they went out to the Mount of Olives; he and his disciples, excepting Judas: him first and then the disciples followed him, according to Luke 22:39, "he came out and went". In Summary: John's account it is learned that several very important discourses were made by Jesus on that same occasion, extending the meeting for a considerable time. John 14-17 records the following as having taken place at that time: (1) the farewell discourse, (2) concerning the Comforter, (3) I am the true vine, (4) Christ's intercessory prayer, and other significant teachings. At least a part of these extended words of Christ might have been, and certainly could have been, spoken on the way to Gethsemane.
