HOW OFTEN WOULD I HAVE GATHERED YOUR CHILDREN
Jesus’ great love for Israel is seen in a passage which is often known as ‘Christ’s lament over Jerusalem.’ Let’s read this passage. Matthew 23:37-39. Here Jesus sighed from the depth of His heart and wept.
Matthew 23:37. “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
38 Behold, your house is forsaken and desolate.
39 For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'”
