We’re back in the Book of Luke. We started this Gospel back in 2018, and have spent 58 Sundays in its pages. We’ve witnessed Jesus’ birth, his teaching, his miracles, and, most recently, his journey toward Jerusalem. This week concludes that journey that began back in chapter 9. While this week’s text may seem like a random smattering of events at the end of a road trip, almost every detail of this story harkens back to an Old Testament prophecy about the coming Messiah. In these pages we see contrasting responses to the Savior of the world: we hear a crowd praising the Son of God, saying “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” But we also hear a growing grumbling from Israel’s religious leaders who are now plotting to kill the coming King.
