Rollercoaster week: The TRIUMPHANT entry into Jerusalem
Just outside Jerusalem, Jesus sent his disciples to fetch a donkey for him to ride.
This was to fulfil the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9
…that the KING would come riding on a donkey.
The crowds cheered:
They threw branches and cloaks to cover the ground where Jesus went:
They chanted and shouted for Jesus: “Hosanna to the king!”
They shouted: “Blessed is the KING who comes in the name of the Lord!”
The Pharisees tried to get Jesus to shut the crowds up. But he had the biggest mic drop with this answer:
Praise Christ the KING!
Palm Sunday: overwhelming, triumphant, wild, amazing.
But Palm Sunday is also Dead Serious.
