What would you do to see Jesus?
What limits you from seeing Jesus?
Herod didn’t see Jesus
19:1 Jericho An ancient city in the Jordan Valley, about 10 miles northeast of Jerusalem; conquered by Joshua and the Israelites when the walls collapsed. Jericho is Jesus’ last major stop before entering Jerusalem.
A ford near the city carries an important east-west road and makes Jericho a strategic entrance point from Transjordan into the highlands of Judah.
The tropical climate and vegetation of the Jordan Valley earned Jericho the title ‘city of palm trees’
Jesus’ activity in Jericho was probably confined to the poorer quarter of the city and did not take him into Herod’s magnificent winter capital on the banks of the Wadi Qelt
