Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 192

  1. “…shouting ‘Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord’” (John 12:13).

Jesus is coming! That cry must have shaken more than one village into a new level of hope. When Jesus came through town, things dramatically changed. Not only were sicknesses healed, but God became personal. Ideas of their ancient God became as modern as a flesh and blood face and a hand to shake. Little wonder that cries of “Save Us!” (Hosanna) pierced this particular morning. Passover is near and the people long for a Savior they have been promised. Can the One who opens blind eyes and raises the dead do something even greater? Can He save His people from their oppressors? Rather than waving a palm branch, perhaps we should consider what our hope and expectations of Him really are.
