son of the morning
Verses 12-14 evidently refer to Satan, who, as prince of this world-system (see "World," John 7:7 (See Scofield "Revelation 13:8") is the real unseen ruler of the successive world- powers. Tyre, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, etc. (see Ezekiel 28:12-14 Lucifer, "day-star," can be none other that Satan. This tremendous passage marks the beginning of sin in the universe. When Lucifer said, "I will," sin began. See Scofield " Read less

The order of events on the night of the Passover supper appears to have been:
(1) The taking by our Lord and the disciples of their places at the table;
(2) the contention who should be greatest;
(3) the feet washing;
(4) the identification Judas as the traitor;
(5) the withdrawal of Judas;
(6) the institution of the supper;
(7) the words of Jesus while still in the room Matthew 26:26-29 ; Luke 22:35-38 ; John 13:3-35 ; Matthew 14:1-31
(8) the words of Jesus between the room and the garden Matthew 26:31-35 ; Mark 14:26-31 ; John 15:16 John 15:17 it seems probable that the high-priestly prayer John 17:1-26 was uttered after they reached the garden;
(9) the agony in the garden;
(10) the betrayal and arrest;
(11) Jesus before Caiaphas; Peter's denial.
A comparison of the narratives gives the following order of events in the crucifixion day:
(1) Early in the morning Jesus is brought before Caiaphas and the Sanhedrin. He is condemned and mocked Matthew 26:57-68 ; Mark 14:55-65 ; Luke 22:63-71 ; John 18:19-24 .
(2) The Sanhedrin lead Jesus to Pilate, Matthew 27:1 Matthew 27:2 Matthew 27:11-14 ; Mark 15:1-5 ; Luke 23:1-5 ; John 18:28-38 .
(3) Pilate sends Jesus to Herod Luke 23:6-12 ; John 19:4 .
(4) Jesus is again brought before Pilate, who releases Barabbas and delivers Jesus to be crucified Matthew 27:15-26 ; Mark 15:6-15 ; Luke 23:13-25 ; John 18:39 John 18:40 ; 19:4-16 .
(5) Jesus is crowned with thorns and mocked Matthew 27:26-30 ; Mark 15:15-20 ; John 19:1-3 .
(6) Suicide of Judas Matthew 27:3-10 .
(7) Led forth to be crucified, the cross is laid upon Simon: Jesus discourses to the women Matthew 27:31 Matthew 27:32 ; Mark 15:20-23 ; Luke 23:26-33 ; John 19:16 John 19:17 .
The underlying imagery is of an oriental returning from the public baths to his house. His feet would contract defilement and require cleansing, but not his body. So the believer is cleansed as before the law from all sin "once for all" Hebrews 10:1-12 but needs ever to bring his daily sins to the Father in confession, that he may abide in unbroken fellowship with the Father and with the Son 1 John 1:1-10 . The blood of Christ answers forever to all the law could say as to the believer's guilt, but he needs constant cleansing from the defilement of sin, ; Ephesians 5:25-27 ; 1 John 5:6 . Typically, the order of approach to the presence of God was, first, the brazen altar of sacrifice, and then the laver of cleansing Exodus 40:6 Exodus 40:7 . See, also, the order in Exodus 30:17-21 . Christ cannot have communion with a defiled saint, but He can and will cleanse him. Read less
