Behold The King!


Palm Sunday is one of my most favorite remembrances in Christianity. To see the King of Kings, riding a donkey entering into Jerusalem with people laying cloaks and Palm branches for him to trod on.  All symbols of royalty.  Thousands recognized and witnessed this glorious site. John tells us,  many that witnessed Him raising Lazarus from the dead bore witness. He had also just been annointed with oil in honor of His coming sacrifice but the disciples hadn’t yet recognized the significance. He entered Jerusalem just as prophecied in Zechariah 9: Rejoice, O people of Zion! Shout in triumph, O people of Jerusalem! Look, your king is coming to you. He is righteous and victorious, yet he is humble, riding on a donkey–riding on a donkey’s colt.

John 12
On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.

16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

Glory to God, Hosannah in the Highest.
