The Hidden Significance of Jesus’s Clothes

Tomorrow is Palm Sunday, the day commemorating Jesus’s arrival in Jerusalem before the start of Passover. He would spend the next four days teaching in the temple and being quizzed by the Scribes and Pharisees.

A quick search through religious pamphlets shows there’s no shortage of explanations: natural result of bad decisions, rotten luck (aka random chance), sometimes at the hand of bad people, the list goes on. In the Bible, especially the Old Testament (as God was … Continue reading Why do good people suffer?
