John 12- In this skeleton crushing episode, we walk forward in the final week of Jesus' life, now his name has grown and his reputation gone beyond the walls of Israel. Greeks are now looking and asking for him, Jesus knows his "hour" has come. This "hour" that Jesus speaks of, is the reason he was born. The crowds wanted a messiah without suffering, but they simply picked and chose what parts of the scriptures they wanted to believe. Much like we do! We must take the scriptures as a whole! His hour has now come, if it came for our master, it will come for us as well! Christian, when your hour comes will you be ready? Why do we want a bushel of roses while our savior received a crown of thorns?
