“Entry into Jerusalem” by Fr. Theodore Jurewicz, 1998

On this day of extreme contrasts we will watch as Jesus is welcomed into Jerusalem by a joyous crowd, and put to death as bystanders jeered him. Yet through it all, the love and grace of God is proclaimed.

Some discussion Questions:
1. What caused the Centurion and those who were with him to believe that Jesus was God’s son?
2. In St. John 12:1-11, what is the difference between Mary of Bethany’s response to Jesus and Judas Iscariot’s response to Jesus?
3. Reflecting on St. John 12:20-36, how do we find and respond to people who are asking to see Jesus today?
