Palm Sunday

Hello everyone! This week we are going to reflect on what Easter is and what Jesus did on the cross for us.

Palm Sunday

First off, what is Palm Sunday? Palm Sunday is the day that we/the Jews celebrated the triumphal entry of Jesus when He came into Jerusalem a week before his death and resurrection on the cross. The reason why it is called Palm Sunday is because the people that greeted Him in the streets waved palm branches to celebrate His coming.

Read Matthew 21:8-11. It tells the story of Jesus coming in to the town.

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.  The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
