They Found the Room
Luke 22:13 (KJB) And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.
The disciples went, they searched, and they found the upper room Jesus spoke to them about.
Not only that, but the disciples prepared for the Passover.
Making ready for the Passover involved the making of food. Passover is an ancient Jewish celebration which marks the celebration of the Jews who escaped captivity. God passed over the doorways which there was blood applied from the Passover lamb.
Today, many Jews participate in observing the Passover celebration including an array of food, worship, and festivities.
The Passover is also an Old Testament picture of the future substitutionary death of Jesus Christ, The Lamb, who shed His blood on the cross.
Jesus Christ’s birth happened thirty-some years previous as the Jewish people were gathering for their yearly observance of the Passover celebration. That is why there was no room for Joseph and pregnant Mary when they reached their destination, leaving the only accommodations in the stable, or barn, among animals because of such a large Passover crowd.
