Surely, Jesus will be their king, the disciples and the gathering people believe.
In our latest episode, travel along with Jesus and his disciples to Bethany, a village near Jerusalem, and the home of Lazarus, Jesus’ dear friend. As we arrive, we find Martha, Lazarus’ sister, waiting tearfully at the entrance of the village, where she delivers news that deeply moves Jesus: Lazarus has died. Jesus has come too late; perhaps if he had come sooner, Lazarus would still be alive.
Watching anxiously, the two sisters reflect on their brother’s death four days ago. Lazarus has been dead for four days. Surely there’s nothing Jesus can do.
Where do the limits of Jesus’ supernatural power lie? Is there anything He can’t do?
As the family of Lazarus and Jesus’ disciples watch in wonder, Jesus does something that astonishes everyone. Something that will, once again, reach the ears of Jewish authorities in Jerusalem. Because Jesus is planning to spend Passover in the Holy City the authorities know that His presence will gather great crowds during a time of outright political tension, posing a threat to the already precarious stability of Jerusalem. The Jewish High Priest concocts a plan to prevent any such occurrence.
Yet, the Sunday before Passover, Jesus and his disciples ride into the city and receive a magnificent greeting from the people laying palm leaves upon his path: surely, Jesus will be their king, the disciples and the gathering people believe. Jewish authorities have become increasingly nervous about Jesus and his popularity with the people
To what lengths will religious and political forces go to prevent an uprising? Is there anyone who will recognize the greater significance of Jesus’ message?
Listen now to experience Jesus’ proclamation of hope and the threat it poses to the different systems vying for control.
