Palm Sunday of Passion Week
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt, fulfilling the prophecy in Zechariah 9: 9. The people greeted him as though he were an earthly king; they were sure he would end the Roman occupation and Jerusalem would again be a Jewish city.
They shouted, “Hosanna,” which means “save us,” and comes from Psalm 118:26 (NKJV)Â “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! We have blessed you from the house of the Lord.”
This begins His journey to the cross.Â Many of the same people who shouted “Hosanna”Â will turn on Him and shout “Crucify Him”.
It is going to be a long week for Jesus.Â He will meet the trials of this week with steadfastness, with peace, and with great courage.Â He will demonstrate that He alone is worthy to be called “Savior of the World”.
Think of these things today…Palm Sunday.
