comment How should we understand the “Cleansing of the Temple”?
Three of the four gospels place this event just days before Jesus was crucified, and they all hint that he went to Jerusalem believing he would soon die. So one factor in the temple cleansing may have been simply that he wanted to force an open confrontation with the authorities that would ultimately lead to his arrest. I'm not sure I can support this, so I'm leaving it as a comment rather than an answer.

comment Does Scripture imply that Judas knew that the high-priests and elders' goal was to have Jesus killed?
One interpretation I've seen is that Judas was expecting Jesus to lead a rebellion against Rome, and was getting restless waiting for it to happen. By having Jesus arrested he was hoping to force Jesus' hand and get the rebellion started. When events played out in a very different way, Judas committed suicide.
