Wednesday Easter Week

On Wednesday of Easter Week . . .

We have no record of what occurred on this day. He went to the temple each day to teach. The Lord delivered some of His most profound lessons at this time while dealing with his distractors. These included the chief priests and elders who repeatedly questioned Him about his authority.

People were starting to separate themselves from Christ.

Christ does not abandon us, we are the ones who leave Him.

"At times we may be tempted to think the Savior is oblivious to our trials. In fact, the reverse is true; it is we who need to be awakened in our hearts to His teachings. Use your ingenuity, your strength, your might to resolve your challenges. Do all you can do and then leave the rest to the Lord." (Joseph B. Wirthlin)

Additional information: The word Easter occurs only once in the Bible (Acts 12:4) and then would be better translated passover. The word comes from Eastre, a Norse goddess whose pagan festival was observed at the spring equinox. There is no real connection between the festival and the celebration of the resurrection. Jesus, being the Lamb of God, was crucified at passover time and is the true Passover. Passover thus became a springtime anniversary, and has come to be called Easter.
