The Triumphal Entry
12The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Blessed is the King of Israel!" 14Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written,
15"Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion;
see, your king is coming,
seated on a donkey's colt."
This is Palm Sunday, March 28, 2010, and we remember when Jesus was coming into Jerusalem on a donkey's colt. The people took palm branches and greeted Jesus, waving the branches in welcome. I grew up Catholic and in our churches, we had high respect for Palm Sunday. We would wave the palm fronds just like they did in this verse and it was always a joyous day. Let us all praise Him today for the sacrifice he made for all of us. Next week is Easter, Resurrection Day! Hallelujah!
