The Three Little Pigs

What would you predict would happen to some rube from who-know-where in Galilee who came to Jerusalem in 30 A.D. and made a disturbance? Wouldn't you predict that he'd get beaten up by the Roman troops, or maybe disappear mysteriously and that would be the end of that?

That's not what happened at the East Gate of Jerusalem, sometime around 30 A.D. Just such a guy entered the East Gate just as Pontius Pilate entered the West Gate with the reinforcements for the Antonia Fort. The rube from Galilee somehow upset the chief priests, the scribes and the Romans, the three little pigs, so much that they hunkered down in their brick house and squealed "Not by the hair of my chiny-chin-chin". Join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, KY for this Palm Sunday's sermon, "The Three Little Pigs" from Philippians 2:5-11 and Matthew 21:1-11 by clicking on any of the blue text.
