Jesus entered Jerusalem on His way to the cross. The people of Jerusalem praised His coming; the Jewish religious leaders dreaded it. Many wondered if Jesus might be the Messiah—the one who would rescue them from Roman occupation. The religious leaders believed Jesus to be a threat to their power and sentenced Him to death on a cross.
In what is often told as the story of the passion of the Christ, there is another lesson to be learned. Jesus wanted us to know that those who would identify with and follow Him would also take up their cross.
