John 12:12-19

Jesus fulfilled prophecy when he rode into town on the back of a young ass, and the people shouted and waved palm branches. The ones who had witnessed Lazarus being brought back from the dead wanted to praise the One who had called him forth. Was he the king they had been awaiting? George McDonald wrote:

"They were all looking for a king
To slay their foes and lift them high;
But thou came, a little baby thing
That made a woman cry."

What Jesus do you know?
