Q. What does it mean that he “was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary”?

A. That the eternal Son of God, who is and remains true and eternal God, took to himself, through the working of the Holy Spirit, from the flesh and blood of the virgin Mary, a truly human nature so that he might also become David’s true descendant, like his brothers and sisters in every way except for sin.

and give him the glory, great things he has done!

Our Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem was a preview of His ascension to the Father’s right hand and coronation as King of Kings.

Introduction – Setting the Stage – Christ sets his face “like a flint” on Jerusalem (vs. 28).

 A King’s Welcome – Cloaks and Praises (vs. 35-38).

 Jesus WILL Be Worshipped – Jesus, the now, future and forever King of Kings (vs. 39-40).

  • Romans 11:33-36

    Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!
    For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been His counselor? Or who has given a gift to Him that he might be repaid?
    For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
