The week leading up to Easter is filled with some very significant history – especially Thursday.
It is today that Jesus and the disciples have their Passover meal together – an annual tradition.
It is today that Jesus washes the feet of all 12 disciples
It is today that Jesus spells out what will happen to Him in the next 72-96 hours
It is today that Jesus’ betrayer is identified and called out in public
It is today that Jesus tidies up things with His closest followers
From the disciples’ perspective, I’m sure some were clueless and others were thinking the worst, but one thing is for sure – not one of them “got it” because we see none of them helping Jesus explain the plan to the others.
Heck, I wouldn’t have gotten it either and it is only because we know what happens on Sunday that we are able to even grasp Thursday at any level.
