Luke 19:28-40; 23:13-25
It is shocking to feel the contrast between those words of blessing, “Hosanna, Hosanna“ and the words of cursing, “Crucify, Crucify!“ It is even more shocking to realize they are shouted at the same person, Jesus of Nazareth. And, it is incredibly shocking that these words were likely spoken by some of the same people in both crowds. And perhaps, most shocking of all, is the fact that these two scenes happened just five days apart!” How in the world did this happen, and Who is Responsible?!
