“We started Holy Week with Jesus’s Triumphal Entry on Palm Sunday. Monday features the temple cleansing, fig tree lesson, and Tuesday where Jesus squares off with the Jewish leaders and teachers of the law. In comparison, Wednesday is pretty low key. We actually don’t have many verses in the Bible dedicated to what happens on this day of Passion Week. It’s eerily quiet, the calm before the storm.
But what’s interesting is where you have Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday, Wednesday also has a special name, one that might not be as familiar to most of us: Spy Wednesday.”
