The Difference a Week Makes

The crowds that went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
“Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

from Matthew 21:9


Scripture From Matthew 21 & 26

Within a week, Jesus is both celebrated and condemned. As Jesus arrives in Jerusalem, he is greeted by crowds shouting "Hosanna," but just a short time later, even one of his closest friends denies even knowing him.
