In the Christian Church Calendar, Palm Sunday is also designated as Passion Sunday. And rightly so because a festive parade, filled with shouts of “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord,” culminates on Good Friday in a bloody Jesus upon a Cross. And in –between the pageantry of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and Good Friday, His last week upon planet earth disintegrates from high praise into the pathos and shame of being executed by crucifixion as a common criminal on a cross. How ironic it is that Jesus chose a strange path to power.
By Palm Sunday Jesus was extremely well known. Everyone coming to Jerusalem for the Passover feast had heard about the Lord, and for a brevity of time, the mood was upbeat. Jesus sent His disciples to the little village of Bethpage to obtain the colt which had never been ridden, commanded them to untie it and bring it to Him.
