He Set His FaceThe Days Drew Near
“Divine design is tied to these events. Nothing is happening by accident.” (Darrell Bock)To Be Taken Up
Jesus is going to Jerusalem not to go to the cross but to go through the cross to victory and glory.He Set His Face to Go to Jerusalem
“I have set my face like a flint...” (Isaiah 50:7)
The People Did Not Receive Him
“Apparently, there was no more room for Jesus in Samaria than there had been in Bethlehem, or than there would be in Jerusalem.” (Philip Ryken)
Misguided ZealBring the Hammer!
The Sons of Thunder had faith and they had passion but they lacked compassion.Rebuked by Jesus
This is the time not for immediate judgment but for patience, grace, and room for repentance.Continuing Onward
We should expect that even as some people will surely reject Jesus, others will just as surely receive the King.
