The Final Journey

“Surely it is a constant source of discouragement to Jesus — even in these last days, and after repeated lessons on humility — that his disciples are still seeking personal glory in the kingdom.  Even now the apostles continue to think only in terms of an earthly kingdom.  Even now the apostles continue to think only in terms of an earthly kingdom.  Jesus admonishes them once again, pointing to the spiritual nature of his kingdom and to the need for humility and service.

There is at least one person who already seems to understand about Jesus’ mission and his call for humility.  That person is Mary, the sister of Lazarus.  As Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem comes to an end, the Gospel accounts tell the beautiful story of Mary anointing Jesus with precious ointments.  It will be a touching prelude to the brutal events of the final week.”

The Perean Ministry

“When Jesus goes into the area beyond the Jordan River, he enters the Perean province ruled by the tetrarch Herod Antipas, the same Herod who had earlier beheaded John the Baptist.  Jesus does not fear Herod, however, because he knows that his end will come only in Jerusalem.  It is unclear whether a warning about Herod comes from Pharisees who really believe in Jesus or whether they are simply trying to get Jesus to leave their area.

Jesus once again teaches through numerous parables covering a wide range of subjects including the cost of discipleship, the value of lost souls, the rejection of his kingdom, the need for humility, and the unrighteousness of hypocritical religion.”
