Gospel of Luke: Rendezvous With Destiny

  • Mark Petersburg

Jesus' last week of his earthly ministry clearly presents him as the promised Messiah. Entering Jerusalem for the Passover was an incredible act of courage for one with a price on his head. The authorities were out to arrest Jesus, but he was on a rendezvous with destiny. This was the purpose for which he had come. We see in this dramatic event the differing responses to Jesus - the crowds, Jesus' disciples, and the religious leaders. Everyone staked out a position of accepting or rejecting Jesus. And so it is today. Everyone must choose what to do with Jesus.
