53 Then, from that day on, they plotted to put Him to death.
9 Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead.10 But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, 11 because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus.
Jesus never let his popularity distract him from his real purpose why he came to the world which is to die on the cross for our sins.
5 reasons why Jesus dying on the cross is so glorious:
2.) He defeated the devil!
4.) Bore all of our diseases!
5.) Allowed access for all to receive salvation!
2 Corinthians 6: 17 Therefore
“Come out from among them
And be separate, says the Lord.
Do not touch what is unclean,
And I will receive you.”
18 “I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”
