It’s also called “Passion Sunday” because we hear the entire story of Jesus’s last days of life leading up to his shedding his Precious Blood on the cross to forgive our sins and give us eternal life. But we will be experiencing that story next Friday.
So this morning let’s look at the Palm part. It’s called the Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. After preaching and teaching and healing and miracling for 3 straight years, Jesus is going into Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of Passover. By this time, everyone in Judea has heard about this wandering prophet, his incredible words of compassion and his mighty deeds of power, so you could say he’s kind of a big deal.
