Palm Sunday – The Entry

The Entry

John 12:12-16

The next day the great crowd of people heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.  They took branches of palm and went out to receive him, shouting:

“Hosanna! Blessed is he that is coming in the name of the Lord, the king of Israel.”

Jesus found a young donkey and mounted it—as scripture says: Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion; Look, your king is approaching, riding on the foal of a donkey.

At first his disciples did not understand this, but later, after Jesus had been glorified, they remembered that this had been written about him, and that this is what had happened to him.

  • How would you image deliberate courage?
  • How would you depict the inner resolve upon which you may depend in times of testing?
  • How would you illustrate humility in the midst of:
    Being despitefully used?
