Session 5.12 for March 24, 2013
In Luke 19:28-40, we hear the story of Jesus’ entry in Jerusalem. This account is full of divine foreshadowing. We know that Jesus surprised the people, even his disciples, by taking their expectations turning them upside down. They expected a King who could overthrow the Roman government – Jesus opened a heavenly kingdom that transcended boundary lines and political parties. They expected justice and judgment against their enemies – instead, Jesus teaches to love our enemies. The people had been expecting a Messiah for a long time. Jesus’ actions and teachings, however, were anything but expected.
