Sermon Notes: The Coming King (John 12: 12-19)
Signs and Scripture testify that Jesus is the King
The Sign shows his power (v17-18)
Lazarus had been called from tomb and raised from dead
Crowd 1 had been with him - ‘continued to testify’
Jesus has power over life and death - crowd 2 in city go out to meet him
The Scripture confirms his position (12-16)
Palms and praises - Crowd shouts Ps 118:26 ‘Blessed is he who comes’
Jesus comes ‘in the name of the Lord’ - with his power and authority
Jesus confirms it by sitting on a donkey - actions speak louder than words
Disciples didn’t get it at first - later remember these things written & done
‘Look, your king is coming’
