What is Palm Sunday?
Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that starts the Holy Week. On this holiday, we commemorate and praise the day Jesus entered Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a great crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus royal respect and honor. The crowd shouted “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven.”
Inspirational Palm Sunday Scriptures
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold your King is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
They took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel.”
