It’s strange how every year something different grabs you from the well known story of Holy Week. This year a line at the end of the section where Jesus is arrested has resonated more than others.
Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.
Matthew 26: 56
I’ve always known that Jesus died alone on the cross but the thought that not one of His friends stood by him struck me as strange. 3 years of miracles and wonders. 3 years of signs and teaching… and not one of them stayed.
