The First Black Friday

Click the photo above AFTER reading this and witness the wide path.

Nobody was pushing to get in on this particular Black Friday. In fact, the trampling was by people running away.

It couldn’t get any blacker. The day turned into night and the night turned into day.

It might as well have been today’s Black Friday because nothing has changed. All the traffic seems to be heading down the wrong side of the freeway at 70-plus.

As students of history, we view Good Friday as good. But the folks closest to Jesus couldn’t see anything good about it and the leaders feared being barred from the synagogue.

Let’s see: those closest to Jesus and the religious weren’t buying anything on that Black Friday.

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: If there was to be any trampling on that Black Friday, it wasn’t going to be by people scrambling to get to the cross. Look familiar?

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it… Matthew 7:13,14 NIV
