Sunday March 29, 2015 - Palm Sunday The beginning of Christian Holy Week
The Sunday before Easter is known as Palm Sunday. It is the beginning of Holy Week. It celebrates Jesus' triumphant
entry into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. Great crowds of people thronged the streets waving palm branches to
welcome Him. The people shouted "Hosanna" and laid their cloaks and palm branches from the nearby trees in His path.
Jesus enters Jerusalem riding a donkey rather than a horse which signifies the peaceful nature of his entry.
People are expecting a king and surrender themselves to his authority by taking their cloaks off and laying it on the ground.
The Palm branches signify the expectation of a military victory of their king over the occupying Romans.
Jesus is entering Jerusalem to bring Peace and forgiveness to the world by taking our sin upon
Himself - a Spiritual King. People are seeking a worldly and physical king.
