Monday: Jesus cleans out the temple
Tuesday: Jesus anointed with expensive oil/perfume
Wednesday: Jesus teaching people
I don’t know anything specific that Jesus did on Wednesday of Holy Week, other than that He was spending time with people and teaching them about the good news and the love of God. However, Wednesday night, I believe, is when Judas goes to the Jewish leaders to betray Jesus. What is amazing about this day, though, is that Jesus knew His time was coming to go to the cross, but He still spent time loving on people and reaching out to them at our human level. Having small children, I am frequently reminded of my humanity and my shortcomings and how easily my emotions are aroused or swayed. I was reminded of my own goofiness when attempting the above Easter craft to make sheep out of handprints and cotton balls…those are supposed to be sheep… that are cute and not creepy.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
