John 12 – This chapter is the turning point in Christ’s story. From this point on everything He does and everything that happens points to His crucifixion. The Parade into Jerusalem begins in Bethany with Mary’s personal adoration of Jesus and her anointing Him. As Jesus enters Jerusalem the crowds are rejoicing and cheering, and celebrating–but all for the wrong reasons. There was a lot of false praise that day.
Are we missing what He has to offer? Are we only praising because of what we want from Him?
