Jesus Knew He Would Be Betrayed By Judas
Jesus made preparations for Passover even though He was fully aware that one of His disciples, namely Judas Iscariot would betray Him. Jesus sent two of his disciples and told them to go into the city where they would meet a man carrying a pitcher of water and told them to follow the man until he arrived at a house and they asked the man of the house where Jesus should eat the Passover meal with his disciples. The man showed them a large furnished room and they made everything ready to eat the Passover meal.
