Podcast - Jesus the Nazarene
Updated: Mar 30
When Jesus enters Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, it really doesn't make a lot of sense until you understand that Jesus was fulfilling the prophecy of the Jewish messiah. He comes to us, not as a generic human being from heaven. He comes to us on the back of a donkey, of a people oppressed by Rome, as a Nazarene.
What does it mean for us today that Jesus wasn't just a human being descended from heaven, but rather a man from Nazareth?
