Why is this week different? (Tuesday)



Jesus–a study in contrasts:



Most people, if they thought someone was out to kill them, would lay low. Jesus entered Jerusalem to the crowd’s Hosanna cries. Next day, he made a scene in the center of town. But the guy who noisily disrupted Temple profiteering spoke not one word about the sham that was his trial. He cursed a fig tree and blessed those who cursed him.

Isaiah 53:5 (CEV)
. . . by taking our punishment,
he made us completely well.

God’s plan . . . counter-intuitive? Cleverly crafted? Definitely different!bless soul pic
