Message: “Our Hero is Here!” from Tom Leonard

Our Hero is Here!

Our Hero is Here! Matthew 21:1-11 Main Point: Jesus challenges our motives and agenda; He wants to accomplish His purposes in our lives, not ours! 1. The People praised Jesus when He came riding into Jerusalem as the ‘King’, expecting that He would accomplish their agenda. verse 9 ‘Hosanna’ (Hebrew - ‘Hosha’na’) = ‘Save’ or ‘Salvation’ - an exclamation of praise, but it had taken on a political meaning. 2. Jesus fulfilled the prophecy from Zechariah regarding the coming King in the line of David. verses 4-5 *‘Donkey’ - a humble beast but used of Kings (2 Samuel 13:29) *Spreading the palms - an act of royal homage. 3. They believed Jesus was a ‘prophet’ - they were right and wrong! verse 11 *Deuteronomy 18:15

Scripture References: Matthew 21:1-11, 2 Samuel 13:29, Deuteronomy 18:15, Deuteronomy 34:10-12
