- In Matthew's version, it's all the disciples, rather than just Judas, who object.

- Still slightly wary about this - 'the poor will always be with you' - but I'm taking it in context as him reassuring the woman/accepting it as comfort before his death.

- I wonder if Judas defected because he felt Jesus wasn't radical enough/didn't truly care for the poor? If this is chronologically accurate/if the chronology is meant to indicate his motives.

- If all rabbis had disciples, that puts the context of Jesus' relationship with the disciples/their position differently.

- The covenant/new covenant being a case of an improvement on the old terms/fulfilment of the old is cool, too. It's less throwing all the good of the old away than it is making it better, fulfilling and making it perfect.

- Even the disciples had resolves that they ended up failing, although the fear of death is a difficult thing to face.

- Jesus' desperation and longing for this not to happen is kind of heart-wrenching.

- Jesus called Judas 'friend' as he betrayed him.

- And Jesus lets them take him without a fight, because he's sure this is the only way. He goes so peacefully, resigned to his fate.

- Oh, Peter cursed! I don't know if that means profanity cursing or literal cursing.
