John 12:1-26
What You Can Miss Among the Palms

Just like today, the people of Jesus' day misunderstood Jesus' trimphant entry into Jerusalem. In their minds it was the event they had waited and longed for for hundreds of years, but they missed the whole point. They missed their Messiah in their religious misconceptions. They missed Him in their focus on political power and freedom. They missed Him personally in their prideful self-evaluation. They missed the only truth we all need today - the only One who can save us from sin.
