Sermon text: John 1:43-51 Jesus said to Philip, “Follow me.” When Philip told Nathanael about Jesus, Nathanael was less than impressed. Philip couldn’t tell him much, so he challenged Nathanael, “Come and see.” To his credit, Nathanael came and saw. And when he did, Jesus told Nathanael, “I saw you.” Simple phrases, but ones which changed these men’s lives.
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey that first Palm Sunday, there were many ideas among the crowd as to who He really was. Most were looking for a political leader and deliverer from Roman tyranny. Others wondered how He could alter their personal lives for the better. A relative few saw Him as One who had a more heavenly mission.
Jesus and his disciples spent a lot of time in the Garden of Gethsemane. Their last trip there together ended with Jesus’ arrest. He would be crucified the next day. Those who were in the garden that night give us a picture of humanity. The guards, the Jewish leaders, Judas Iscariot, and the disciples all fell short. Jesus on the other hand, was perfect and sinless.
