John 12:19 ” Look how the whole world has gone after Him!”

You would think that after His triumphal entry into Jerusalem proclaiming He was the Messiah the Teachers of the Law would remember the Word, look at Jesus, & put the two together. They only had to look to Isaiah 45:23 where God declared, “Before Me every knee will bow; by Me every tongue will swear.” Or Psalm 95:6-7, “Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are His people…” But no, they only saw Jesus as a threat…contradicting all their man-made traditions and leaving them in their mind struggling for survival. In this verse you can sense their frustration as they exclaimed, “Everybody is converting, our efforts to get rid of Jesus have failed!” But even in their self-centeredness, God was sovereignly using their own words to prophecy about His Son…as we read in Philippians 2:10-11, “That at the Name of Jesus every knee should bow in heaven and on earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” For it is God alone Who is Creator & Redeemer, and needs to be exalted above all others… as we bow in repentant submission before His majesty.
