Palm Sunday marks the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, and the start of “Holy Week”. Some of the most familiar teachings and stories of the gospels occur during this week preceding Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.

Our relationship with Christ is the foundation of our faith and we can learn so much by studying His life. Although He was fully God, He was also fully man and walked out a human experience that includes joy and love along with suffering and hardship. Jesus shows us how to navigate challenges and even tragedy. We can be confident in His love for us, even in the midst of difficult times!

Jesus demonstrates what it looks like to live with a strong connection to the Father and a deep compassion for people. These two priorities are more important than ever in our current circumstances! We must strengthen our relationship with the Lord and find ways to nurture connection and community with others.

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

Mark 11: 1-10

11 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”

They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, some people standing there asked, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,

“Hosanna!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
