As I mentioned last week, the Israelites were looking for a savior. They were looking for a king who would ride in and rescue them from the Romans and all their other problems. They never got what they were looking for in a physical, earthly manifestation. Jesus wasn’t a government gladiator or born in a palace or a battle-tested warrior or even a soldier. But He was the Savior everyone needed and none deserved.
