AN UNRECORDED DAY

(PASSION WEEK—WEDNESDAY) Part 1

We have traced from day day the of Jesus through the earlier days of its last week, its of Sunday, its of Monday, its of Tuesday. On each of these days Jesus has come over the hill from Bethany into the city, and has returned to the village night. And now we come to the last day the Passover and the betrayal; the last chance to meet his enemies and to his cause. What then does Jesus do on this last Wednesday of his ? So far as we know, he does nothing at all. It is a day record. There is no New Testament from which I can read about it. He appears to have stayed at Bethany, perhaps his friends, perhaps for a part of the day alone. His work was done, and he used this last day for quiet .
