Today with Palm Sunday coinciding with April Fools day I wondered if there was any connection. It could possibly have been an early April Fools joke and would explain the "Hosanna in the highest" one day and less than a week later "Crucify him."
Though trying to pull a prank on an omniscient God-man is impossible. Mary and Jesus’friends never could pull off a surprise birthday party no matter how hard they tried. Besides what can you get someone who made everything. In fact Jesus is the world’s only self-made man.
