Today, Palm Sunday is scarred by terrorism. At least 38 people have been killed in Egypt while attending church services. See the full story here. I am speechless, horrified. Please join me in prayer for the victims, their families, their country, and their killers.
Palm Sunday commemorates the celebration of Jesus' return to Jerusalem.
Each of the four Gospels tells of this event: Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:29-38 and
The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem. They 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!”
Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written:
“Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;
see, your King is coming,
seated on a donkey’s colt.”
At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about Him and that these things had been done to Him.
Peace be with you all. God bless.
