Jesus’ final week began with Mary anointing Him with costly perfume. He entered Jerusalem as the Messiah, riding on a donkey as throngs of His followers welcomed Him as their Prince of Peace. With four days remaining in His earthly life, He taught that the cross was imminent, His future pain great, and the need for His death urgent. Responses to His teaching varied. Some clung to His side, but in the end, all fled. How should we respond to Jesus, our suffering Saviour? With hearts that stay committed to the end.
