The Bible for Young People, Vol. 6 : Narratives of the New Testament, II (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Bible for Young People, Vol. 6: Narratives of the New Testament, II Before accompanying Jesus and his disciples through the streets of the city, to the temple, we must make a few remarks in justification of the account we have given of their entry; for it departs in several particulars from the narratives of the Gospels, which do not always agree with each other. According to Luke the disciples of Jesus cry: Blessed be the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace be in heaven, and glory in the highest!1 upon which certain Pharisees who are present request the master to forbid them; but he replies: I tell you that if they held their peace, the very stones would cry out! One does not quite see what had brought the Pharisees thus early into the presence of Jesus, and his short and stem reply strikes us as an implied rebuke, and a kind of echo of the wail over Jerusalem's im penitence, already mentioned. At any rate this question and answer can hardly have been uttered upon this occasion. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
