In the Gospel from Luke (Luke 13:31-35) we meet Jesus continuing his journey to Jerusalem. Told by some Pharisees that Herod seeks to kill him, He is not distracted. He sends a dismissive message back to his adversary whom he compares to a fox, a small, weak animal who uses cunning because he lacks any real power.
Then, he opens his heart and weeps over Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how many times I yearned to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were unwilling! Many for whom Jesus came, failed to recognize Him in the day of His visitation.
