      • A warrior entered a city on a horse. A king on a mission of peace entered riding upon an ass. Jesus would not enter as the warrior king and ruling Messiah expected by the Jews, but rather as a man of peace, fulfilling the spiritual concept of the Messiah. Here, Jesus once more seeks to demonstrate to his followers that his kingdom is not of this world; it is a purely spiritual affair involving the rule of God in the hearts of his earth children.

      • "and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles"--Jesus was crucified in March, A.D. 35. A little more than 30 years later, in 66 A.D., there was a revolt of the Jews seeking to throw off the Roman yolk. The Roman army came against them and in 70 A.D. they broke through the walls, leveled Jerusalem and killed many of its inhabitants. This they did in response to the revolts led by socalled "deliverers". The Jewish historian Josephus recorded the scene: " would have thought that the hill itself, on which the temple stood, was seething hot...the blood was larger in quantity than the fire...the ground did nowhere appear visible, for the dead bodies that lay on it, but the soldiers went over heaps of those bodies, as they ran upon such as fled from them. While the [temple] was on fire, everything was plundered that came to hand, and ten thousand of those that were caught were slain; nor was there a commiseration of any age, or any reverence for gravity, but children, and old men ... and priests, were all slain in the same manner." (Flavious Josephus, Book VI, Ch. 5)

      • "But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me."--Before this time we have heard of the Father's Spirit of love and the Holy Spirit; but this is the first mention in the Bible of the Spirit of Truth. This is a new spiritual endowment that is to be sent by Jesus from the Father. This spiritual endowment appears to be a joint bestowal from both the Father and the Son; and it is to bear witness to the truth of Jesus and his teachings.
