Who does this man think He is?!


Matthew 21:10-11 New International Version (NIV)

10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”



“Wednesday - April 8 - Read Matthew 21:10-11

In Matthew 2:3 the Magi arrive in Jerusalem and ask about a newborn

king. The whole city became “disturbed” by this news. Here Jesus

enters Jerusalem and once again the whole city is “stirred” up. Who is

this Jesus? What has he come to do? Is he just posturing in order to

get attention? Or is he a serious threat to the Roman government and

King Herod? Today these questions still persist. Who is Jesus? Is he

just a “good teacher?” Is he teaching us the power of peaceful civil

disobedience? Is he a heroic martyr? This entry into the city of

Jerusalem is a declaration that He is the king! He is the king who has

come to rescue and save us. King Jesus entered into Jerusalem to

announce that His kingdom had come and no one could stop it. Not

even death! What a king we have!
