Who Is This?
Palm Sunday, April 9, 2017
Pastor Steve Brown,
When Jesus entered Jerusalem and created a commotion, people in the crowd who were happening by asked, “Who Is This?” The answer: “This is the man who has come into your city to be arrested for crimes that were not committed by anyone, tried, tortured, and executed by crucifixion. And he planned to do exactly this all along, so that you can have real and eternal life, more and better life than you ever dreamed of. Also, this man is God.” Say what? Jesus’ intentional entry into Jerusalem, having predicted three times exactly what would happen to him there, is a stunningly clear window into the mind of God and how great is God love for us!
Next Step: Deepen your understanding of God’s love for you, observe Holy Week.
