Holy Wednesday

Bethany was astir. People were talking. Why wouldn’t they? After all, not long before Holy Week, Jesus showed the world His power over death by raising His friend Lazarus from the dead in Bethany. A week before Passover, Mary anointed Jesus in Bethany. John tells us:

Meanwhile a large crowd of Jews found out that Jesus was there and came, not only because of him but also to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well, for on account of him many of the Jews were going over to Jesus and putting their faith in him.” (John 12:9–11)

None of the Gospel writers tells us specifically what Jesus did on Wednesday of Holy Week. Sometimes it is called “Silent Wednesday.”  After two exhausting days in Jerusalem, I bet Jesus and His disciples rested and prayed in anticipation of the Passover.

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes…including you.” ~ Anne Lamott

Sometimes you just need a day with family and friends…simply to rest.
