What would you say about someone who completely changes his mind from one point of view to another? You might be surprised and wonder what happened to lead to such a change in behaviour or attitude. Jesus experienced this in his own life on earth. One week, the crowds that followed him were praising him with shouts of praise, and the next week, they were uttering shouts of disdain, calling for his death. At first, the crowds were ecstatic; then, they were filled with anger. What happened? This historical account serves as a classic example of not seeing the whole picture.
This Sunday is Palm Sunday when Christians around the word reflect on the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem a week before his betrayal and crucifixion. The people at that time were hoping that Jesus would be their long awaited king and deliverer from Roman oppression. What did they miss? To get the whole picture, come this Sunday for Part 1 of the Easter Story. See you at Innis Town Hall @10:30 a.m.
