The Hour Has Now Come for the Son of Man to Be Glorified

John 12:12-26

When his mother asked him to perform a miracle (his first) at a wedding, Jesus responded “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” (John 2:4) Three years later (Palm Sunday) Jesus declares, “The hour has come.” Jesus refers to the timing of his ministry, especially his crucifixion, resurrection and ascension, in which he is glorified.
