From Exaltation to Rejection
This week began with tremendous excitement and great expectations. As the week progressed the people, including the disciples, went from exaltation to dejection, from excitement to disappointment and discouragement, from hope to disillusionment and from belief to unbelief.
The week of Christ’s death, burial and resurrection was a week that began with tremendous excitement and great expectations for these early followers of Christ. The followers of Jesus were ready to crown Him as their King, only to have all of their hopes and expectations crushed because of His death. They were unable to grasp the significance of what was taking place. Their belief in Christ was so shattered that even after His resurrection they were slow to believe.

At the end of the week these same people who began the week proclaiming Him as King of the Jews were now rejecting Him and sentencing Him to crucifixion on the cross. His disciples who proudly argued with one another about who was going to be the greatest and sit next to him in the kingdom were now forsaking Him. And Peter, who once proclaimed Him as the Christ was now found denying Him three times. Their belief in Christ was so shattered that even after His resurrection they were slow to believe.
