Jesus, King of the Jews," in Hebrew characters. It is like the last word of the Jewish Scriptures, --the last warning of the chosen people. A cloud henceforth is upon the people and the language of Israel. "Blindness in part is happened unto Israel, till the fulness of the Gentiles be come in." Once again Jesus, after His ascension, spake openly from Heaven "in the Hebrew tongue" (Acts xxxvi. 14.): but the words were addressed to that Apostle who was called to preach the Gospel to the philosophers of Greece, and in the emperor's palace at Rome.

"The triumphal entry cannot be separated from the crucifixion, even as the latter can't be separated from the resurrection. Jesus was deliberately coming up to Jerusalem to give his life as a ransom for the sins of mankind; it was God's will that the sacrifice should be made in such a public manner that the attention of the world and of the ages should be concentrated upon it."
None of the recognized Messianic titles of his day was remotely adequate to express what he had come to do, just as we find that, if we try to confine him within one of our own modern Messianic titles (freedom fighter, social reformer, avant-grade theologian, guru, or whatever), we only make it more obvious that he is a unique figure. Some of the titles may be correct; none can be adequate.
They (speaking of miracles) are only a part of the total picture of Jesus' ministry, only one aspect of the unique authority which Jesus displayed. Indeed they are far from being at the centre of Jesus' mission; he was very much more than just a miracle worker. Faith based on his miracles alone would be too shallow: this is a regular theme of the Fourth Gospel, and it may well be the reason for his reticence in allowing the report of his miracles to spread too widely. He had more to accomplish than merely to go down in history as a nine-days' wonder.
We would like to share some worth-while quotes from various authors to make you pause and consider different aspects of what God's Word teaches.
