TEXT: John 12:20-22
Kenneth L Woodward said, "By any secular standard, Jesus is also the dominant figure of Western culture. Like the millennium itself, much of what we now think of as Western ideas, inventions, and values finds its source or inspiration in the religion that worships God in his name. Art and science, the self and society, politics and economics, marriage and the family, right and wrong, body and soul – all have been touched and often radically transformed by Christ."
Yesterday, we saw how the Pharisees, who were plotting to kill Jesus, expressed frustration at Jesus' growing popularity even to the point of declaring, "Behold, the world is gone after him."
Today, we see a little glimpse of how people from all over the world would begin to follow Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that "there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast."
