JOHN 12-13: POURED OUT - The Trouble With Crowds
Apr 10, 2016
Gary Lee Webber
The “herd mentality” is that phenomenon where people get swept up in the emotion of a crowd. We have all seen and maybe even experiences this. Perhaps it happened for you at a college football game or at a political rally. The herd mentality can have devastating effects like those seen in a riot or it can produce something beautiful, as it often does after a natural disaster when people rally together to help their neighbors. But what, if any, effect does the herd mentality have on our religious believes and experiences? In this second message of the five-part series, Poured Out, we will consider a passage in John 12 where a crowd welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem proclaimed “Hosanna,” only to scream “crucify Him,” a few days later.
