King Jesus Comes to Jerusalem to Die for the World

July 17, 2022 Speaker: John Bell Series: The Gospel of John

Passage: John 12:12–33

  1. King Jesus comes to Jerusalem (12–19)
  • “Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem”
  • “Jesus found a young donkey”
  • “Blessed is the king of Israel!”
  • “Look how the whole world has gone after him!”


  1. King Jesus predicts the “hour” of his glorification - that is, the appointed time for his death, resurrection, and exaltation (20-30)


  1. King Jesus’ death/glorification will achieve four things (31-33)
  1. It will pass judgment on the world.
  2. It will ‘drive out’ the prince of this world – the devil.
  3. It will exalt him.
  4. By it, Jesus will draw all people to himself


This sermon series owes a debt to D.A. Carson’s “The Gospel According to John”
