Jesus weeps over Jerusalem
Jesus weeps because he wants all men to be saved; not only Jerusalem, but all the world. But they would not, but if only! Jerusalem would have been spared the horrid events of ad 70, and the world would be saved from the day of Judgment. So let us rejoice that he has given us grace to know him, and to know the things that belong unto our peace: his holy precious blood and his innocent suffering and death for our salvation. And let us follow him. See where he goes: into Jerusalem and into the temple. And now he become angry, for he sees the cause of this unbelief: the teachers were thieves; the shepherds were feeding themselves. Here is how to understand the wrath of God. He is angry with those who would cause you to stumble. His anger is because of his love. And as he bids you to be devoted to him, how much more is he devoted to you, and keeps you as the apple of the eye. So learn to love him and to love your neighbor because of this.
