The Unexpected King
John 12:1-26
A message about Jesus's triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The talk unpacks the expectations people had of Jesus coming as the Messiah and how He might solve their needs. However, Jesus conquers the world but, not how people may have expected. This is relevant to our lives now as its worth asking, what kind of king are you expecting that is worthy of our lives? What kind of king are you living for?
