SCRIPTURE COMMENTARY #473

And on the first day of the Azymes, the disciples came to Jesus, saying: "Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the pasch?" But Jesus said: "Go ye into the city to a certain man and say to him: 'The master saith, My time is near at hand. With thee I make the pasch with my disciples.' " And the disciples did as Jesus appointed to them: and they prepared the pasch. (Matt. 26: 17-19)

OMNISCIENCE OF OUR LORD: He knew beforehand that Peter and John would meet a man in the city, carrying a pitcher of water, who would go straight into the house where Jesus had arranged to eat the Pasch. He also saw into the heart of Judas, and knew that he was mediating His betrayal.
