Hosanna in the Highest

“Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the kingdom of our father, David, that comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” Mark 11:9–10

The Big Walk-Out

“See! Your house is left to you desolate. For I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” (Matthew 23:39)

Jesus Mourns the Temple

Without God’s blessing, Israel suddenly became unprotected. Struggles and strife would (and will) plague it until the nation recognizes Jesus as the promised Messiah. Jesus even laments about it to the Pharisees in Matthew 23:37–39.

Jesus’ Prophecy Fulfilled

And so, Jesus wept.

The Waiting Game

Jesus had a lot of reasons to be anxious that final week in Jerusalem.

Walking together with you as we build our faith in our holy Lord and Savior together.
