Jonathan Edwards Recognizes That a True Disciple's Godly Affections will be Sustaining and Persevering

May 13, 2015

 

"We learn by the evangelist John that the reason why people made this ado, was because they were affected with the miracle of raising Lazarus, John xii. 18. Here was a vast multitude crying "Hosanna" on this occasion, so that it gave occasion to the Pharisees to say, "Behold, the world has gone after him," John xii. 19, but Christ had at that time but few true disciples. And how quickly was this ado at an end! All of this nature is quelled and dead, when this Jesus stands bound, with a mock robe and crown of thorns, to be derided, spit upon, scourged, condemned and executed. Indeed, there was a great and loud outcry concerning Him among the multitude then as well as before; but of a very different kind: it is not then, "Hosanna, hosanna," but "Crucify, crucify.""
