We are entering the most solemn and holiest of weeks. Jesus’ final earth days and He is in full-on “teach them now 101” mode. He is putting the pedal to the metal in His final earth words.
The disciples are with Him and they are baffled and confused. Jesus does everything possible to un-confuse them!
If the forty days of Lent were too overwhelming for you – might I suggest you observe Holy Week.
Let it change you.
One can almost hear the pounding of the nine-inch nails.
