‘THAT Was the Week That Was’ was a television comedy programme from the early 1960’s.
It was a topical political satirical programme which poked fun at the events of the week and included musical items, skits and irreverent humour.
It broke ground in comedy by lampooning the establishment and political figures and it’s probably why it only lasted for two years. No doubt if it was aired today it would be crippled by numerous lawsuits from those from whom the ‘mickey’ had been taken.
Two thousand years ago, whilst there wasn’t the global media around to record the beating, name-calling and death of Jesus Christ, it is well documented he was crucified and died and then rose from the dead.
This weekend, let us stop and consider the events of that first Easter in Jerusalem by imagining what it was like being part of the vast crowd that was in the City for the Passover Feast.
How did we feel watching three men die in agony on three wooden crosses? How did we feel knowing that two of the men were guilty of their crimes and the other man, Jesus was innocent?
As the Son of God, Jesus Christ came to earth, to live and share the Love of his Father and then to die in each of our places in order that we might experience that love in our lives.
As we enjoy our Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns let us spare a thought for Jesus and the real meaning of Easter.
