Palm Sunday 28 March 2010 – The Triumphal Entry
Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter Sunday, and on this day Christians traditionally rememberJesus’ entry into Jerusalem, where he was met by excited and jubilant crowds who loudly sang His praises. Some people cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the roads. This is why this day is referred to as Palm Sunday, as in Palm trees.
Matthew Chapter 21 verses 1-9
Now when they drew new Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples
saying to them “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them, and bring them to Me.
And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say ‘The Lord has need of them’ and immediately he will send them.”
All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
“Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, you King is coming toyou,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.'”
So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them.
They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them.
And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:
Hosanna to the Son of David!
Blessed is He come comes in the name of the LORD!
Hosanna in the highest!
