"Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn Him to death, and they will hand Him over to the gentiles to mock and scourge and crucify Him, and on the third day He will be raised up."

Before entering the city, our Lord pulled His disciples aside and gave to them, a one sentence summary of what was to go on this week of His passion. His appointment with the cross would not be denied, but not before being filled with dicey dialogue with the religious leaders, ministry to the needy, broken and condemned, sleepiness and even denial by those closest to Him. Yet on that faithful Sunday morning of His resurrection, the resounding shouts of joy, relief, anticipation and wonder filled the air. With the cries "He is risen" sounding and continuing to sound for us today, His completed work on the cross is for all men.
