Happy Palm Sunday!
Happy Palm Sunday everyone!

Today we celebrate Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem where everyone turned out to welcome this amazing miracle-working teacher/prophet in person by waiving branches, throwing their cloaks on the ground in front of him and making all kinds of noise. An event that was so significant it was recorded by...um...wait a minute...this can't be right...exactly none of the historians alive and active at the time including Philo of Alexandria who conceivably could have actually been there for the event.

If I didn't know better, it would almost seem like they made this shit up... Shocking

Five days give or take. The "eye witness testimony" isn't entirely in agreement. But yeah, it didn't take long for the mob to inexplicably turn on him.

The whole thing was a diversion so that kids wouldn't notice that the Easter Bunny was coming to town.

Easy to explain if you look at it rationally. Tongue

RE: Happy Palm Sunday!
I noticed the other day that in the Gospel of Matthew (traditionally read today) it has Jebus already being called "the Christ" and being asked if he was "the son of God" by almost everyone ... including the Roman and Jewish authorities. Clearly that thinking reflects a much more developed (ie MUCH later) notion of who he might have been .. and pretty good evidence, (as far as I'm concerned that) the entire business of the trial was invented. Then there is the weird line at the death which says "And behold, the veil of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom ... the earth quaked etc.. tombs were opened, and the bodies of many saints who had fallen asleep were raised. But hold on. They had to wait in their tombs. Jesus has to rise *first* .. ("firstborn from the dead" and all that ... so they had to SIT in their tombs, raised, and alive, ... oh never mind. Weeping ).

When I was really little I thought "*Palm (tree) Sunday" was "Wear a Hawaiin shirt to church" day. Tongue

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
