As we approach Easter, today we celebrate the procession of Jesus into Jerusalem.
At this end of Holy Week the crowds are cheering Jesus, as we travel with him over the coming days the crowd will turn against him, his friends will deny him and he will be betrayed.
This pictures comes from a show I was involved with in 2004 when Theatre South Productions presented Jesus Christ Superstar, by Andrew Lloyd Webber, at Eastwood Theatre. Singing Hosanna, the crowd are welcoming Jesus with their palm fronds.
Above them, the priests are looking down on them in disdain.
