Jesus has entered Jerusalem. What is termed the “triumphal entry” is his walk to his death. People have come out to see Jesus. But to see Jesus is to see Jesus going to the cross (12:23). Now is the time for Jesus to be glorified and his glorification will be through his sacrifice. We learn from Jesus the spectacular glory of self-sacrifice. Jesus will be the grain of wheat that is planted in the ground so that through his death much fruit will be born for the glory of God. This scene continues in John 12:27-36.
