3 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -Entering Jerusalem-Matt. 21: They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Hosanna in the highest!" 10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?" 11 The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee." 3

4 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -Peace in Heaven, Glory in the Highest-Luke 19:38 38 "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" -Jesus Will be Worshipped-Luke 19: Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!" 40 "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." 4

5 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -The Beginning of the End -John 12: At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him. 17 Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. 18 Many people, because they had heard that he had given this miraculous sign, went out to meet him. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, "See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!" 5

7 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -Jesus and the Path of Suffering-John 12:

8 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -The Glory of God in the Face of Christ-2 Cor. 4:4-6 4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. 8

9 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -The Best Gift of God’s Love is the Enjoyment of His Beauty-Piper “One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple”-Ps. 27:4 9

10 THE GRAND ENTRANCE -The Best and Final Gift of the Gospel is that we Gain Christ-Piper “I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ” Phil. 3:8 10
