Oh hey isnt bethany close to Mount of Olives, yes I remember now, its only a couple of miles lets go and see if He is the what was that word again ? the messi…uh…..messiah. (thinking) i know i should know what that means….think think think…sabior, no savior YES thats it SAVIOR.

the city is still energized from his entry and momentary departure….hey wait, is that them? IT IS, IT IS, IT IS come on mama daddy look Jesus is coming back into town, look at those men walking with him, wow 12 men surrounding him but how come they aren’t decked out in robes, they look, they dress like us……uh oh the religious guys with those robes are meeting em out there, looks like they are asking a bunch of questions pointing to each other…almost like asking Jesus who does He think he is,…daddy are they gonna fight….wow here come another set of men with flowing robes and they have questions..what are they asking? and what is Jesus saying? He is so calm.
Hey mister, mister what are the religious guys asking Jesus? Really? they want to know what the most important commandment is? what did Jesus say mister , what did he say?
we must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind and all your strength. The second is equally important: Love your neighbor as yourself. No other commandment is greater than these. daddy mama did you hear that, what about ALL of those others? Thanks mister, did yall hear that. Love God, love people!
Mama so when is the passover meal? thursday, man thats just a couple of days away, will you tell me again why we do what we do, and why we are here? do we really have to sacrifice our lamb?
