IF IT'S NEWS WE WANT IT THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT week in the v Christian religion. It begins with joy in remembering Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem on what we call Palm Sunday and it ends with greater joy with the blessed fact of the Resurrection on Easter. * * * IN BETWEEN THOSE TIMES, we commemorate the path that the Son of God trod to Calvary to die for the sins of us all. If we didn't know how it all came out, the story of the Crucifixion could not help but be one of darkest despair. But no matter how terrible the events of that week so long ago seem to us, we have the assurance of Easter Sunday. Whether it rains or snows, whether we have a new spring outfit or not, nothing can detract from the glories of Easter for every person who truly believes ! * * * THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN JESUS' time were fortunate. They tiad the chance to hear His words, to walk and talk with Him and to be healed in body and spirit by Him. Those nearest and dearest to Him, thought He was the Son of God; some of them fervently believed He was. Yet, after death, even His most faithful disciples were engulfed by the sense that it was all over. They didn't know it was the beginning of hope instead of the end. * * * PALESTINE AT THE TIME OF CHRIST, was an advanced civlliza- ion. They had sewer systems, education was compulsory, false teeth lad been in use for 500 years, there was a form of taxi meter, they old time by water clocks, had a strict form of taxation and they loaned money out at 8 percent interest! * * * THEY HAD VERY LITTLE TROUBLE with housing criminals. Of- enders were given what amounted to a fair trial before the Sanhedrin, but all sentences were severe. There were no prisons, no asylums and ,he usual sentences for those found guilty was death in one of four ways: stoning, burning, decapitation or strangulation. Sometimes they com- >ined them and hung the offenders on a cross. * * * NOBODY WAS EXACTLY SURE what horrible crime Jesus had committed, but after everybody decided to "wash their hands" of him, was sentenced to die on the cross. And two others, listed in the Scriptures as "thieves" were sentenced to die on either side of Him. * * * EXECUTIONS WERE PUBLIC IN THOSE days. The one sentenced to die wasn't the only one who suffered, for I imagine that many of the families of the condemned witnessed the killings, drawn both by a horrible fascination and the desperate hope that at the last, their loved one would be pardoned. * * * SCRIPTURE TELLS US THAT MARY, the Mother of Jesus, was at the Cross and we can only imagine what torture she suffered, even though she knew her Son was destined to save the world. Because the Bible tells us that everything written there is true and "many more things", I am wonderfhg If the mother of one of the thieves could not also have been present. Hi * * THE MOTHER OF ONE OF THE THIEVES could have been a woman who had always had trouble with her boy. Maybe he was mischievous in his youth, prone to skipping school at the temple and probably keeping the change when she sent him to the merchant for a bottle of olive oil. Later he probably fell in with wild companions, but ic probably still had winning ways. Like most mothers, she might have :hought he would grow out of his naughtiness and settle down when ic was older. * * * THE MOTHER OF THE THIEF DESTINED to die next to Jesus, might have been one of the multitudes privileged to hear Him speak, he might have been there when He preached His strange philosophy if turning the other cheek and she might have heard her neighbors clucking over this Nazarene who sometimes preferred shady charac- ers to the Pharasees and Publicans who held high offices. * * * IT COULD BE THAT THE MOTHER of the thief hadn't heard much rpm her boy for the past few years. Youngsters, boys especially, aren't 06 good at writing letters, unless they need some quick cash from home, "•erhaps she had raised some money a time or two by selling a few ossesions when her boy was in trouble. Or maybe the first word she lad from him was when she found he was really in dutch with the au- horities. If she was like most mothers, she rushed to his side immediately. * * * CALVARY. JUST OUTSIDE OF JERUSALEM, was dark the day of he executions. An unseasonable storm seemed to have struck the area, he atmosphere outside was not half so dark as the feeling inside the oved ones of the men to die there. As if the disgrace of being condemned, the pain of the nails, the slowness of the death and the inhuman orture of the soldiers weren't enough, the crowds had to hurl insults t them ! The mother of the thief must have thought, "Why can't he ie quickly and leave me to my sorrow ?" * * * ONE OF THE THIEVES, SCRIPTURE tells us, joined the crowd n jeering at our Lord. "King of the jews ! Well, then save yourself !" ie other, struck by a blind, overwhelming faith said, "Put in a good vord for me to your Father". Jesus, out of His amazing compassion aid, "This day you shall be with me in paradise" ! * * * IF THE MOTHER OF THE THIEF WAS THERE, and I like to think that she was, these words must have been transforming. If her boy, a thief, was acceptable in the eyes of this man who more and more proved he was the Son of God, could gain salvation simply because he believed, surely there was hope for her, too, and for any of her neighbors ! The Bible doesn't tell us, but she could have been one of those to whom He appeared in the days before the Ascension. We do know that the thief who hung on a cross at the side of Jesus is, according to the Bible, one of the very few people absolutely assured of gaining heaven. * * * A MOTHER'S FAITH IS AS OLD AS TIME- A mother can always see some good in her child, no matter how hidden it is from the rest of the world. It is pure speculation on my part, but I would venture the guess that the thief who at the last moments of his life gained salvation by his simple statement of faith, also saved others. * * * ONE OF THEM COULD HAVE BEEN his mother. I do know that it would not be the only time a parent has been led to eternal truths by one of his offspring. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Conversation Pie. It is called this because people always start talking when it is served trying to guess what is in it.
