Jesus Our King

Matthew 21:1-17 says about the two incidents in which Jesus communicating God's message not only through His words (teaching, stories) but also through His actions. Riding into Jerusalem on a donkey, declaring Himself as King, the people were excited and elated.
Second incident Jesus's cleansing of the temple is also a prophetic sign of what He wants to do with each of us. He ever seeks to cleanse us of sin and make us living temples of His Holy Spirit.

  1. Hi! Thanks for your comment and visit. I read your post with interest. I also read that you think that Jesus declared himself King, but I read the four gospels and couldn't find this. I saw however that the people did this and were excited. This is also what I believe.
    I am glad that you dare write about Jesus.Jesus was first and foremost a Jewish man, who lived according to the Jewish rules and laws. He was God's face in the world and God's voice. He was a devout Jewish man filled with love of God and people.
