I have a riddle for you: sometimes it’s outside of you, sometimes it’s within you, & sometimes its location is unknown. What is it? Things for which we search. Sometimes it’s outside of you – keys, sunglasses; sometimes it’s within you – “What was I thinking, why did I say that;” & sometimes its location is unknown – “I don’t know what I’m looking for but I’ll know it when I see it.” The crowd in today’s Gospel reading was riddled. When Jesus came to them riding a donkey, they had questions. We’ll look at Matthew 21 again in a minute, but first, we’re thankful for:
I. Palm Sunday
II. Matthew 21:10 – When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, Who is this?”
a.Matthew 21:11 – The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
b.Prophet Priest King
God is a mystery, not a riddle.
