Excerpt from The Story of Christ's Passion
With this spirit, Jesus recrossed the Jordan, and the little company again stood on Judean soil. Behind Him were Perea and Galilee, the scenes of His ministry by word and deed; before Him the final act of His life. Having been rejected as the Messiah of His people, He turned toward Jerusalem to give His life a ransom for many. He was coming, not as the priests expected, who desired that His first appearance Should be announced to them, but openly, at the head of His apostles, and followed by a long caravan of pilgrims to the Holy City for the Feast of the Passover.
