The death of Jesus of Nazareth — 2 Comments

  1. I don’t believe that the crowds who welcomed Jesus to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday comprised the same people who bayed for his blood on Good Friday. The powerful have always been able to get support even where it’s agains those supporters best interest. (Brexit anyone?) In general, the churches today are as happy to align with the powerful elites as the Temple authorities were in Jerusalem.

  2. There were almost certainly some who remained loyal to Jesus, but the evidence of recent history would seem to suggest that a depressingly large number of people are easily misled.
