  1. 1. Luke 19:28-29 After Jesus had said this, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. As He approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, saying to them, www.networkbible.org
  2. 2. Luke 19:30-31 ‘Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it.’ www.networkbible.org
  3. 3. Luke 19:32-36 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as He had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, ‘Why are you untying the colt?’ They replied, ‘The Lord needs it.’ They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. www.networkbible.org
  4. 4. Luke 19:37-38 When He came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: ‘Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!’ ‘Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!’ www.networkbible.org
  5. 5. Luke 19:39-42 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, ‘Teacher, rebuke your disciples!’ ‘I tell you,’ He replied, ‘if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.’ As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you, had known on this day what would bring you peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes. www.networkbible.org
  6. 6. Luke 19:43-44 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.’ www.networkbible.org
  7. 7. Jesus’s ministry has reached a CLIMACTIC point so it is interesting that He PAUSES short of His destination. Luke is drawing out the SIGNIFICANCE of Zechariah’s prophecy, even if He doesn’t directly QUOTE him. Jesus pauses to orchestrate the details necessary to PRESENT Himself as the MESSIAH
  8. 8. …they recognize Jesus’s ROLE in God’s MISSION Ask any disciple on this day if Jesus would be CRUCIFIED in a few days and they would have responded, ‘are you KIDDING?’ Some of the harshest critics of faith could not reconcile what they BELIEVED about God with what they SAW in the world.
  9. 9. Part of the battleground of the mind is addressing INADEQUATE views we may hold. You will never have an adequate view of God if you LIMIT yourself to the texts you like while OVERLOOKING those you don’t. Inadequate views have the tendency to become inadequate PRAISE
  10. 10. The battleground of the mind is to RECEIVE Him for Who He is (continuing to grow in understanding), that He may MAKE us who He would have us to be.
