Jesus came to Bethany

     Holy Monday.  The last act of Jesus’ drama is being prepared.  All persons of interest, who are going to take part in the play, are on the stage.  There’s Jesus, there are Lazarus, Maria, Martha, apostles, and Judas among them.  There are the Pharisees, also priests, and high priests.  And in a moment the action on stage shall begin.
     Terrifying.  If you really tried to feel the situation which starts shaping up – even though we are used to Jesus’ death – still, when it is about to play out as we look on, blood seems to curdle in our veins.
