Hosanna! (Mark 11:1-11)

The Palm Sunday narrative is a very familiar one that even non-Christians know.  More than the fact that the crowds welcomed Jesus one day and a week later condemned him, we today can learn from this text that sometimes the change we desire is not the change that God has planned.  But rather than lament the fact that our will is not done, we need to counter our human nature and trust in Him completely.

We Wish to See Jesus (John 12:20-33)

Jesus' ministry began with the Jews, God's chosen people whom he came to save.  But in today's text we see a group of non-Jews seeking to find Jesus, and to see what all the comotion is about.  Like the Greeks, we need to see Jesus revealed to us, not just as a great teacher, not just as a worker of miracles, but as the very Son of God who came to the world He created, to save it from sin and death.
