As Jesus enters Jerusalem in preparation for His final week of ministry He confronts dead end religion head on for the empty shell that it really is.
As Jesus continues His ministry the conflict with the religious leaders of Israel grows. As this conflict grows it reveals Jesus’ commitment to people and meeting their greatest need. For Jesus, people matter, their needs matter, and their greatest need matters most to Him. In the face of opposition from the religious elite Jesus message is loud and clear, the priority of human need outweighs the need for human conformity to religious ritual.
