Just for Today

Our Scripture on Palm Sunday was Luke 19:28-40.  These verses are also in Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11 and John 12:12-19.

As Jesus leaves Bethany near the mount of olives, he gives directions to his disciples, “Go into the village over there, and as you enter it you will see a colt tied there that has never been ridden.  Untie it and bring it here.  If anyone asks what you are doing, say The Lord needs it.”  Luke 19:30-31 (Living)

This fulfills the prophecy in Zechariah 9:9.  Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of the Old Testament.  He was elaborate in all of his activities during this last week of his life.  Many in Jerusalem who were there for the Passover had heard of him.

“Just for Today”

  • Imagine the dynamics of communication during this time in History.  No phones, not TVm, no internet.  I think opf the Pope in St. Peters Square and he has a microphone and a Script!!
  • The disciples followed his directions and there was the colt!
  • Jesus did not come as a King with a chariot – or with a horse.  He came on a humble donkey.
