6 Days Before Easter: Man's Feeble Attempt to Stop God

When coming into Jerusalem prior to his death and resurrection, Jesus entered the city through the Golden Gate into the temple ground. There is deep significance in Jesus' choice to use that gate, which was reserved for the high priest to use.

Jesus was and is our high priest, the one who atoned for our sins.
