What was Jesus doing Wednesday?

We don’t know. The scriptures are silent about this day in the middle of Holy Week.   I wonder . . .

Did Jesus visit with his family? Did he spend some time with his mother?  Did he try to reassure her that everything would be okay and tell her just to trust him?  Did he continue to stay in the home of his close friends, Lazarus and Mary and Martha?

If so, were they involved with preparations for the approaching holiday — the holy day — Passover?  Is there no record of Jesus’ activities or whereabouts on this day because people were doing what they had to do to get ready?

I wonder if he watched as Martha fretted over her list and fumed because no one was helping her.  I wonder whether he reminded her of what he had told her before — that she was worried and distracted over many things.  I wonder if he shook his head as she thought about the Passover lamb, not even realizing that she was in the presence of the Lamb of God Himself.

Was everyone simply too busy to notice Jesus that day?

Am I?
