Dead Man Walking

John 12:12-19  (ID: 2000)

When Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey, the crowds were expectant: Lazarus, a recently dead man, was living again, and excitement about Jesus was spreading. The Pharisees, however, were frustrated, and His disciples were confused. Their responses show us that to understand Jesus, we must listen to His proclamation about Himself, not our own opinions about Him. Observing His triumphal entrance into Jerusalem, we can recognize the demonstration of courage, obedience, and love that would lead Him to the cross.


The Triumphal Entry

12The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
