A multitude of disciples, people following Christ, are openly and loudly praising Jesus. "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" (vs. 38). This, of course, infuriates a number of Pharisees who are part of this crowd, and they tell Jesus to make the people stop. (I can totally visualize this scene in my head.) Jesus' response that if those rejoicing and praising were silent, "the very stones would cry out" hit me powerfully. Only six words yet quite revealing, pointing to Who Jesus is and God's complete power and control over everything.
