Some Holy Week Summations, and a Recommended Podcast

Last Sunday (Palm Sunday), I was asked by a friend how I would explain Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday to kids. Since I have neither skills nor experience with children, I tried to sum each down to a couple of concepts. Palm Sunday, Christ coming in humility on a donkey. (Thanks Issues, Etc.) Maundy Thursday, Christ institutes His Supper to leave a piece of himself with us, just like a parent or grandparent would leave a trinket with his or her grandchild when they went away on a journey (I know, a possibility for a mixed metaphor). And Good Friday, Christ receiving glory in suffering, being the seed that goes into the ground and dies to produce spiritual fruit. (John 12:23-24).

Horse vs. Donkeys-Christ's feet were dragging on the ground

Also, here’s a favorite Issues Etc. Podcast: Rev. Paul McCain on Luther on the Passion of the Christ: Link

A continued blessed Holy Week to you all.
