Mar 12, 2023    Pastor Mike

Within days after raising Lazarus and a celebratory dinner, Jesus enters Jerusalem to much fanfare, interestingly all 4 gospel accounts describe this event, how are they the same/different? Mt.21, Mk.11, Lk.19:28-

What are reasons for the timing of this event and Jesus' impending crucifixion?

What old testament passages predicts this event and how is it described? Palm Sunday

Which gate did Jesus enter on that day?

How will Jesus enter Jerusalem when He returns?

Why is it so fascinating to read these verses in John 12:20-21 Greeks seek Jesus, 37-38 Jews "they still were not believing in Him"

How many titles & metaphors of Jesus are seen in this Triumphant entry?

How many times is Jesus' death/sacrifice stated or alluded to in this text?

Do you love life more than Jesus or Jesus more than life? John 12:25 "The one who loves his life loses it, and the one who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life."

Do you love the praise of Men or the praise of God? Jhn 12:43 "for they loved the approval of people rather than the approval of God."

is it understandable that the people expected a different kind of King? “We have heard from the Law that the Christ is to remain forever"

Towards the end of the text the warning is given to you and I: John 12:48 "The one who rejects Me and does not accept My teachings has one who judges him: the word which I spoke. That will judge him on the last day.". will you reject the rightful ruler of your heart or surrender to His supremacy?!!
