7448Re: Just who do you think you are, Jesus?
- Oct 3, 2007I've not been following the thread lately but ...
one, the acclaim offered to Jesus on his entrance was supposedly excited
by his resurrection of Lazarus, thus proving his claim of Messianic
status in the eyes of the populace.
Two no tradition of which I'm aware segregates this entrance from the
general celebrations connected with Passover ... modern speculations
about this are exactly that and unsupported by evidence.
Three, the conjunction of the "save us, son of David" with the
politically charged atmosphere of the Passover season fits as a
motivation to take extreme action by the authorities.
The feast at which he sneaked up to Jerusalem is mentioned in St. John's
Gospel ... and is not connected to the Lazarus event nor to the
IN HOC MODO, MILLIS FRANGITVR!
