Luke 22:8 And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, so that we may eat it.” 9 They said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare it?” 10 And He said to them, “When you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house that he enters. 11 And you shall say to the owner of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room in which I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”’ 12 And he will show you a large, furnished upper room; prepare it there.” 13 And they left and found everything just as He had told them; and they prepared the Passover.
The Passover Meal began the observance of both The Feast of The Passover and The Feast of Unleavened Bread. The law required that the Passover meal be eaten in Jerusalem. This was no small undertaking for a group that size. Not only did the disciples need a place large enough for all of them to eat, they also had handle all of the details required to prepare it. The lambs were required to be sacrificed in the temple and had to be cooked a certain way, additional dishes had to be prepared, the table to be set a specific way and with specific utensils, and a place had to be prepared for each participant.
Knowing what all went into this, and knowing they were not prepared to handle it on their own, the disciples gave the perfect response. When Jesus said “Go”, they simple asked “Where?” If God is asking you to do something, even though it may seem impossible or beyond your means, you can rest in the assurance that He has already gone before you, handled the details, and made the provisions.
