One minute, you’re the most popular guy in class and the next minute you’re not. That’s how fast public opinion can change.
Just ask Jesus.
On Palm Sunday, he’s riding a donkey as the crowd lays down branches and shouts, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord”. By Friday, the crowd is shouting, “Crucify him!”
Somehow, somewhere, something went terribly wrong.
Or did it?
Maybe what appeared to be wrong was actually God’s plan to set things right. Good Friday reminds us that just because something doesn’t appear to have a happy ending is no proof that God wasn’t behind it.
