April 14th: Palm Sunday

Day one in the Passion week is known as Palm  SUNDAY. It is the day that we celebrate what is known as Jesus’ triumphant entrance into the city of Jerusalem… 

On the Sunday before His crucifixion, Jesus began His journey into Jerusalem to offer Himself as a sacrifice for our sins.  

Fulfilling Old Testament prophesies, according to Zechariah 9:9: Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a borrowed donkey… 

“Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

A great crowd welcomed Him crying out, “Hosanna, to the son of David!  Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord…” 

What we now know is that just a few short days later, many of those same people would betray Him & witness His torture & death.

That night, Jesus spent the night in Bethany.  

These events are recorded in: Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19.
