Rev. Todd Kollbaum, Director of Rural and Small Town Mission with the LCMS Office of National Mission, joins host Rev. AJ Espinosa to study John 12. Learn more at lcms.org/rstm. John 12 completes the thought of the previous chapter: now that Lazarus has been raised back to life, even the hard-hearted people in Judea are coming around on this guy from Nazareth. Our Lord is welcomed into the city like a war hero, as palm branches and shouts of Hosanna effectively say “All hail the king!” The tension with the Judean authorities has reached a boiling point, and Jesus knows there isn’t much time left. Although John says that even some of the Judean authorities have started to believe in Him, this faith is in the earliest stages of infancy. They do not really understand what kind of king Jesus is. He hasn’t come to be king of Israel alone, but of the whole world. Their patriotism is greater than their faith in God, and the crowds are still baffled by our Lord’s “Son of Man” predictions. John however tells us that the disciples would understand later: Jesus was pointing them to the Cross, where He would be glorified by His Father.
