Events Leading up to Jesus' Arrest
Urantia Paper 171: On the Way to Jerusalem
Urantia Paper 172: Going into Jerusalem
- UP 172:0 No New Testament Correspondence.
172:1 Sabbath at Bethany. Matt.
11:55 to end, John
- UP 172:2 Sunday Morning with the Apostles, No New Testament Correspondence.
172:3 The Start for Jerusalem--"The Triumphal Entry". Matt.
- A warrior entered a city on a horse. A king on a
mission of peace entered riding upon an ass. Jesus would not enter
as the warrior king and ruling Messiah expected by the Jews, but rather
as a man of peace, fulfilling the spiritual concept of the Messiah.
Here, Jesus once more seeks to demonstrate to his followers that his
kingdom is not of this world; it is a purely spiritual affair involving
the rule of God in the hearts of his earth children.

- UP 173:0 No New Testament Correspondence.
173:1 Cleansing the Temple. Matt.
- (The Bible lists two cleansings of the temple. The story in John
agrees with the Urantia Book, but John has placed it so early:in
Jesus' career that Bible authorities call it a separate episode
from the one reported by Matthew, Mark, and Luke who have placed
it in the proper time segment--the last week of Jesus' life.)
173:2 Challenging the Master's Authority. Matt.
173:3 Parable of the Two Sons. Matt.
173:4 Parable of the Absent Landlord. Matt.

party that sought emancipation from direct Roman rule through the

- "Sadduces"--consisted of the priesthood
and certain wealthy Jews.
174:4 The Great Commandment. Matt.

Hebrew Messiah which comes from Mashi'ah, and which means
"anointed one." The concept of the "nointed one"
derives from the fact that kings were anointed with holy oil at
their coronation to show that they were consecreated to God.

Urantia Paper 176: Tuesday Evening on Mount Olivet
- UP 176:0 Destruction of the temple. Matt.
176:1 The Destruction of Jerusalem. Matt.
- "and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the
Gentiles"--Jesus was crucified in March, A.D. 35. A little
more than 30 years later, in 66 A.D., there was a revolt of the
Jews seeking to throw off the Roman yolk. The Roman army came against
them and in 70 A.D. they broke through the walls, leveled Jerusalem
and killed many of its inhabitants. This they did in response to
the revolts led by socalled "deliverers". The Jewish historian
Josephus recorded the scene: "...one would have thought that
the hill itself, on which the temple stood, was seething hot...the
blood was larger in quantity than the fire...the ground did nowhere
appear visible, for the dead bodies that lay on it, but the soldiers
went over heaps of those bodies, as they ran upon such as fled from
them. While the [temple] was on fire, everything was plundered that
came to hand, and ten thousand of those that were caught were slain;
nor was there a commiseration of any age, or any reverence for gravity,
but children, and old men ... and priests, were all slain in the
same manner." (Flavious Josephus, Book VI, Ch. 5)
176:2 The Master's Second Coming. Matt.

- UP 180:4 The Promised Helper
- "But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from
the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father,
he will bear witness to me."--Before this time we have heard
of the Father's Spirit of love and the Holy Spirit;
but this is the first mention in the Bible of the Spirit of Truth.
This is a new spiritual endowment that is to be sent by Jesus from
the Father. This spiritual endowment appears to be a joint bestowal
from both the Father and the Son; and it is to bear witness to the
truth of Jesus and his teachings.
