As Jesus journeyed toward Jerusalem he stopped and cried out once more to a land he loved and to a people he cherished.  Have you ever watched a mother hen tending  her biddies?  If you have, you know if she senses danger lurking she swooshes those babies under her wings, daring any predator to come near!  Jesus tells the people of Jerusalem He would have gathered them in his arms, protecting, loving, and forgiving them.  Yet he is forced to come to the sad conclusion: “but you would not let me!”

As the crowd shouted  messianic praises the opposition told his disciples to discipline the crowd.
Jesus  scans the Temple area before he and his disciples retire to Bethany.

See you tomorrow where you’ll see the anger and wrath of the gentle Nazarene!
