John 10 vs 12-19 (John 12:12-19)

Rosemary Aldis, 25th March 2018
Part of the Ad hoc sermon series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

We can identify 4 participants in Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem - (1) the cheering crowd, (2) the frustrated Pharisees, (3) the King of Peasce and (4) the puzzled disciples. We must decide our response as they did - (1) to feel threatened, (2) to look with a selfish attitude to see what Jesus can do for me or (3) to acknowledge what Jesus has done for me and share it.

John 12:12–19 (Listen)

12 The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,

15   “Fear not, daughter of Zion;
  behold, your king is coming,
    sitting on a donkey's colt!”

16 His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him. 17 The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. 18 The reason why the crowd went to meet him was that they heard he had done this sign. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, the world has gone after him.”
