Word For The Week
"As Jesus approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it"
Jesus' so-called 'triumphal entry' ends in tears. He weeps over Jerusalem, knowing that the city will inevitably face judgement because of what it was about to do to him. The city's failure or refusal to acknowledge him ultimately led his his rejection and crucifixion. But Jesus weeps at the prospect of judgement falling on the city. He is not vengeful, despite the appalling things the city will inflict on him.
