John 12: 12-16
I wonder what it must have been like in Jerusalem all those years ago, when Jesus first rode into the city on a donkey. I can picture being in the crowd in the capital city. The excitement and tension in the air is tangible. There is a festival, people are everywhere, people coming and going. I imagine, much like in a flea market or a fall fair, the food and aromas in the air and the booths with an array of different trinkets and things for sale. There is something different about this particular festival at this particular time. People are talking, Jesus is coming!
