Wednesday of Holy Week

 
Tuesday had been a tempestuous day, and Thursday was to be the day on which Jesus was arrested.

Jesus engaged in little if any public activity on Wednesday, according to the gospel accounts.  He may have spent the day visiting with friends.  He may very well have spent it, at least in part, in meditation and prayer.  He knew what was coming.

But others were, it seems, very active.  This was probably the day when the Jewish leaders at Jerusalem finalized their plot to have him killed, and it was probably on Wednesday that Judas Iscariot entered into an agreement with them to betray the Lord.
