This is His City.
The City of the Great King.
Just days ago, He wept over this City.
He had come for her, but none of her wanted Him.
The things He said were hard to grasp.
He was not like anyone who had come before.
He seemed to break all the rules.
Of course the” great ones” who knew the law and lived their whole lives in the temple would have none of it.
He made everything too easy- it did not please them.
He made God so accessible –it was against their theology.
He introduced God as a Father-that was preposterous.
He hanged around sinners- How?
So that’s why today they drive Him out, out of the City,His City
To Kill Him.
Because in this land judgement happens outside this City.
Even though this is His City.
