Scripture Emphasis:

Luke 19:39 “Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”


Sometimes the majority is flat out wrong (Num. 13, 14).  Others times the majority is correct.  On this day in the city of Jerusalem the majority was right on.  Unfortunately, their leaders, a minority, were horribly wrong.  While others were rejoicing, they were not.  Don’t be like them because they were…

1) __________ – they desired to stop His crowd – Luke 19:28-40




2) ___________ – they tried to stop His message – Matt. 12:1-8




3) __________________ – they wished to end His influence – John 11:45-57; Mk. 11:15-19




4) _____________ – they attempted to discredit His authority – Matt. 22:15-40





Don’t be like these leaders.  Your life of joy depends on it.

Embrace the Mess!
