1. If you could not hear this week’s sermon, consider going to the church website and listening to it. What main ideas did you gain from the message? Do you have any questions?

2. Read Matthew 21:1-17 and note three observations. Why do you think Matthew’s account sites so many Old Testament Scriptures? Describe the reaction of the chief priests and scribes when they saw the wonderful works of Christ. Why do you think they responded this way?

4. Read Luke 19:28-46 and note two observations. What did Jesus mean when He said the stones would cry out (cf. vs. 40)? Why did Jesus weep over the city? What does it mean that things were “hidden” from the eyes of certain people? Who hid these things and why (cf. Matthew 13:10-15).

5. How does John’s account of the Triumphal Entry (cf. 12:12-19) differ from that of Matthew’s, Mark’s and Luke’s? Why didn’t the disciples understand these things about Christ?

What did the disciples experience as a result of their obedience to Christ? What are some challenging ways in which the Lord is calling you to obey Him? Are you willing to obey God?

7. Why do you think all four Gospel accounts record the Triumphal Entry of Jesus? What makes this event so important? What does this event tell us about the person of Christ? How should this story encourage us as Christians?
