Betrayed! (Ps 55)
Palm Sunday marks the first day of Holy Week, reflecting on the day Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey as people put down palm branches and cloaks along the path with shouts of “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” The earthly ministry of Jesus seemed to reach its climactic moment when the savior King would restore the people. Things unwound from there as Jesus was betrayed by one in his inner-circle and crucified. How does one get through such despair? This Psalm tells a similar story with King David and shares with us his inner battle and how he dealt with his burden.
