Jesus paused at the precipice of the Mount of Olives and reflected upon the past that pushed him forward to the future that awaited him. What took place in Jerusalem leading up to his death and resurrection was not arbitrary or out of some spontaneous reaction to the actions of others. Jesus anticipated the events that would follow, which lead to his persecution and ultimate crucifixion. Therefore, the why behind his motives matters.
Below is a link to my “Passion of Christ Harmony of the Gospels” – enjoy reading his story from a compiled perspective that each of the Gospel authors provided. Focus on the message and not the “historical details,” although what happened to Jesus is recorded in history.
Just as Jesus paused in the present moment, we too should take time to pause and look back on the past that had shaped us and pushed us to where we are today, and then turn our eyes to what lies ahead with the same anticipation to gaze upon the future that our past choices have led us to face.
As you read the Passion Story, truly ask yourself, “Why do I believe what I believe about Jesus?”
