Jerusalem, Israel

They brought the colt to Jesus. Then, throwing their coats on its back, they helped Jesus get on. As he rode, the people gave him a grand welcome, throwing their coats on the street.

Right at the crest, where the Mount Of Olives begins its descent, the whole crowd of disciples burst into enthusiastic praise over the mighty works they had witnessed:

Blessed is He who comes,
the King in God's name!
All is well in heaven!
Glory in the high places!

Luke 19:35-38, The Message



Courtyard at the Tower of David, Modern Jerusalem in the background,
Jerusalem, Israel

When the city came into view, He (Jesus) wept over it. "If you had only recognized this day, and everything would have been good for you"!

Luke 19: 41, The Message



Jerusalem, Israel

"Behold your house (Temple) is being left desolate.
For I say to you, from now on you shall not see Me until you say,"Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord"!
Matthew: 23:38-39, NASB

(Spoken by Jesus upon leaving the Temple for the last time leaving it without God's glory. The Temple in Jerusalem was completely destroyed by the Romans in 70AD. It has never been rebuilt... YET!)
