Jesus’ Compassion

On Palm Sunday 2008 I preached on the text immediately following Jesus’ triumphant ride into Jerusalem.

“As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it…” Luke 19:41
Jesus saw the destruction that was soon to come to the people of Jerusalem because they did not truly recognize their Messiah, but instead of blasting the people with angry words, he cries.
If Jesus cries over every person who insists on heading for self-destruction, he must cry a lot.
