Believe and Live! Exploring the Gospel of John

See You in Court

THE FAMILY RELIGION Annas and Caiaphas had false religion they were using for personal gain. No longer was it a religion for delight; it was a religion they were placing on the people of God so they could have monetary gain. John 18:12-14; 28-32.


Palm Sunday: The Tearful Entry

I think the crowd turned on Jesus because He didn’t fulfill their expectations of a real Messiah. They were still looking for a military hero to deliver them from the hated Romans. They missed the point that He was riding a lowly donkey. They were looking for a general like Judas the Hammer. Over the next few days, it became obvious Jesus wasn’t a military revolutionary. He was a suffering servant who was going to be handed over to the Romans. He failed them, and they turned on Him in vicious rejection.
