In All His Glory

John 12 is a hinge chapter and a turning point in the Gospel. The first half of the book “the book of signs” comes to a close and the “book of glory” begins. It’s at this point that Jesus' popularity soars and many put their faith in him (John 11:45; 12:16-17). When he enters Jerusalem for the last time crowds gather to cheer and hail him as king. And yet not everyone is cheering. The religious authorities are bent on doing whatever is necessary to stop Jesus. Jesus' popularity is a problem and he must be arrested. The high point of the story, as told by John, is the cross. We might think how tragic and yet for John, the death of Jesus on a cross is no tragedy. It is the pinnacle of Jesus’ glory. When Jesus is on the cross he is proclaimed king in all the chief languages of the world (John 19:19). His glory is displayed for all to see! In this sermon series leading to Easter we will listen and learn as we are introduced to the people and events that lead to the moment when we see Jesus on the cross in all his glory.
