We live in a society in which admitting one’s own sins is seen as a sign of weakness.
Many Spanish-speaking Twitter users give their vision of the last hours of Christ in Jerusalem, as recorded in the gospels.
Starting on Palm Sunday, many evangelical Christians have been tweeting about Jesus’ last days, as if they were reporting live from first century Jerusalem.
The initiative was started by the Spanish online news magazine Protestante Digital. Their Twitter account shares Jesus’ last teachings, moves and curiosities as they are found in the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke).
Many others have joined in commenting their reactions to Jesus' actions from a political point of view, from the Pharisees’ perspective, the atmosphere on the streets, reflections that the disciples could have done after listening to Jesus, etc.
The highlight will arrive on Sunday, when the ressurection of the Christ is announced.
All the tweets can be followed with the hashtag #PascuaJesus.

Gritaron el domingo: "Viva el Rey". Y el viernes: "Crucifícalo". Jesús no cabe en nuestras cajas, ecuaciones o tradiciones. #PascuaJesus
