JESUS and Obama

A couple of days ago, I was watching Obama’s victory speech on Youtube.  Obama has been receiving so much love and praise from folk for winning the Democratic nomination.  I was truly happy for him.  However, the situation left me trying to imagine the kind of accolades and adulation that Jesus received when he rode a donkey into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday (Luke 19:28-44)?

    I’m not quite sure what you’re insinuating.

    I am not insinuating or speculating as to anything. I am just drawing a comparison. The praise Obama is receiving as a political figure makes me think about the praise Jesus received in his march into Jerusalem. The people thought he was going to be the one to topple Rome’s rule.
