This series looks at Psychology Today’s “Questions that Keep Us up at Night,” with particular focus this week on the question, “What do I want?” The question in biblical context reveals the sobering answer that the one who places selfish fulfillment ahead of Jesus loses life and forfeits soul. At the same time, the one who places Jesus before every other desire gains salvation, life and blessing.
Different accounts of an event may be expected to yield small differences in emphasis and perspective without undermining the truth of the events they record. In this resurrection sermon, consideration is afforded the great harmonizing work of John Wenham in reconciling any apparent discrepancies in the gospel accounts of Jesus’ resurrection. Emphasis is also paid to why the resurrection is of critical importance in Christian teaching.
Did the people really understand the implications of what they were crying that Palm Sunday? Probably not, for what they were crying is “Hosanna,” and Hosanna means “turn away the wrath, please!” While the people likely did not understand the full import of what they were crying, that import is, nevertheless, relevant, and I am glad to cry out with all that is in me, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” Lord Jesus, turn away the wrath, please! And He has! Praise the Lord
