April 8 - Luke 19.28-48
Jesus Enters Jerusalem
32They went off and found everything just as Jesus had said. 33While they were untying the donkey, its owners asked, "Why are you doing that?"
34They answered, "The Lord needs it."
35Then they led the donkey to Jesus. They put some of their clothes on its back and helped Jesus get on. 36And as he rode along, the people spread clothes on the road in front of him. 37When Jesus was starting down the Mount of Olives, his large crowd of disciples were happy and praised God because of all the miracles they had seen. 38They shouted,
"Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven and glory to God."
39Some Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, make your disciples stop shouting!"
40But Jesus answered, "If they keep quiet, these stones will start shouting."
41When Jesus came closer and could see Jerusalem, he cried 42and said:
It is too bad that today your people don't know what will bring them peace! Now it is hidden from them. 43Jerusalem, the time will come when your enemies will build walls around you to attack you. Armies will surround you and close in on you from every side. 44They will level you to the ground and kill your people. Not one stone in your buildings will be left on top of another. This will happen because you did not see that God had come to save you.
Jesus in the Temple
47Each day, Jesus kept on teaching in the temple. So the chief priests, the teachers of the Law of Moses, and some other important people tried to have him killed. 48But they could not find a way to do it, because everyone else was eager to listen to him.
