The Rabbi’s Dust 5. Jesus the Rejected (Palm Sunday)

As Jesus approached Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, the people saw only what they wanted to see; a figurehead, a threat, a political leader, a wise man, whatever. None of them recognized that by riding into Jerusalem on a donkey on that day of that month in that year, He was presenting Himself as the Messiah. They rejected Him because of their false-expectations. People still do. In this session, we explore the prophecy He was fulfilling that day, the tendency we still have today to reject Him, and the lessons we can learn about dealing with rejection ourselves.
