John 12

John 12, Jesus is eating at the home of Lazarus when Mary used expensive perfume to anoint Jesus feet and wiped them with her hair.  Jesus said that she was preparing him for burial.  Jesus then enters
Jerusalem on a young donkey while people are paving the way with palm branches.  Jesus teaches the crowd that he is the light and the Son of God. 

The thing that has stuck out for the last few chapters is how many Jews actually believed that Jesus was the Messiah and followed him.  It has been highlighted and prophesied that the Jews rejected them, and this is true as a rule.  It does seem to be lead by the Pharisees and chief priest, who had the most to loose with the change due to their privileged position in the temple.  In verse 20 it even talks about Greeks coming to worship and wanting to see Jesus.

One neat event is in verse 28 where God spoke.  Some of those that heard it said it must have been thunder, others said it was an angel speaking to him.  WoW!  Just think, one day we will hear this booming voice and we WILL tremble at its sound.

Have a great day,
