The build up to Jesus dieing

Today we watched another bit of the Jesus DVD. The first thing we saw was when Jesus was entering Jerusalem and everyone was looking and cheering. We then saw hoe three groups of people were feeling about Jesus.

The Romans wanted peace in Jerusalem but when Jesus came there was no peace at all in Jerusalem and so they either wanted him quiet or dead.
The Jewish authorities were worried that Jesus would cause a revolution and then the Romans would wipe out the Jews so they wanted Jesus gone.
The third group were the Zealots and they were the Jewish rebels who wanted to get rid of the Romans using violence. They wanted Jesus to lead a revolution against the Romans.

However Jesus did not want violence but instead he said Gods plan was for him to die for all the people and this seemed to upset Peter and his mother because they did not understand.

  1. Great stuff Adam! I wonder if we had been there with Jesus whether we would have not understood and been like Peter and his mother? Today we can know that Jesus is alive and that although God's plans involve sacrifice, it's always the best of things in what sometimes seems the worst of times!
