Scripture & Prayer Requests

1a
John 12:12-19


Amplified Bible (AMP)


12 The next day a vast crowd of those who had come to the Passover Feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
13
So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him. And as they went, they kept shouting, Hosanna! Blessed is He and praise to Him Who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!
14
And Jesus, having found a young donkey, rode upon it, [just] as it is written in the Scriptures,
15
Do not fear, O Daughter of Zion! Look! Your King is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!
16
His disciples did not understand and could not comprehend the meaning of these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified and exalted, they remembered that these things had been written about Him and had been done to Him.
17
The group that had been with Jesus when He called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from among the dead kept telling it [bearing witness] to others.
18
It was for this reason that the crowd went out to meet Him, because they had heard that He had performed this sign (proof, miracle).
19
Then the Pharisees said among themselves, You see how futile your efforts are and how you accomplish nothing. See! The whole world is running after Him!
