Here He comes. See Him there?
On a donkey,
Just as the prophets foretold.
Could it be?
What is this strange feeling...oh...it's...
The Messiah!
The Son of David!
He has come!
Hosanna!
Blessed is He who comes!
We'll be free from the Romans!

But, what about the religious leaders?
What will they say...?
Some say they hate Him.
But, they can't hurt him...can they?
Not without the Roman's permission.
I hope He knows what He is doing.
If we don't praise Him the rocks will what?
He'll be fine.
It's not like he's angering the Roman dogs.
No, it's just the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Did you hear?
Hear what?
He did it! He finally lost His cool!
What happened?
Ohh! I heard it was a mess!
The courtyard...
The money changers...
The animal cages...
All tossed out into the street!
His Father's house is a house of Prayer!

No!
They can't!
He hasn't done any of those things...
Please...let Him go
What? Blasphemy?
But...what about the signs and wonders?
He never spoke of war...
Or even against Caesar.
"Give to Caesar what is Caesar's..."
Please...let Him go.

He's gone...dead...lifeless...
Placed in a borrowed tomb.
That wasn't the worst part, you know.
They tortured him.
Beat...
Lashed...
Scorned...
And then, the nails.
I couldn't watch!
Could anyone?

Now what?
The others are fleeing the city.
Do we wait...for another day
Or leave at first light tomorrow?
I don't know.
I'd like...
What?
I'd like to go to the tomb...
For what?
To prepare His body properly.

He's...GONE!
What?
Who?
How?!
Don't you get it, He's Alive!
Alive? Are you sure?
I saw Him with my own eyes,
I touched Him...
He spoke my name...
Yes, He's...alive.

I like the dialog here which gives the reader glimpses of our Savior's last week on earth. Good job.

I can't even begin to imagine what it must have been like to witness Jesus in His time. You Certainly gave me a great glimpse of the emotions His followers must have had.

Congratulations for placing in the top 40 overall.
