About the Story

Jon: So to bring us up to speed since we have been in 1 Samuel for a while, and are shifting gears for a short time to focus on this story. 

Bradon: Sounds great, so we are reading from Matthew Chapter 21 today Verses 1 – 11 

Jon: This is all about Jesus entering the town of Jerusalem. 

Bradon: Yeah obviously, as you read through this it seems as though this is a really big deal, can you give some context to that? 

Jon: Absolutely


Bradon: So where does this leave us? Jesus is in Jerusalem and the people are celebrating, but what does that say to us today 2000 some odd years later? 

Jon: Well – This time of year is always a reminder of who Jesus is, and His victory over sin! I love this bit of scripture. I imagine the excitement, the party, the laughter and joy the people were experiencing as Jesus was entering for they knew who He is. The Messiah. 

Bradon: Pretty wonderful thought! 

Jon: I think we get to take part in this feeling and celebration every year! And this is the exciting, anticipation of that! 

Bradon: I think it is even more than just excitement! I appreciate the word rejoice, and I certainly don’t use it enough. But it captures this feeling well. 

Jon: Rejoice in the Lord! Is the lesson for today! He has forgiven our sins! 

Bradon: and that is definitely something to celebrate and focus on every year! 

Jon: definitely worth pausing our current series! 

Bradon: totally agree!
