2007-04-01 - Palm Sunday
As many of you know, on occasion, we at CFDev / Webservants Ministries feel
led to present a Bible passage without commentary, and "let the Bible speak
for itself." Today we give you the Bible story that is commemorated annually
in many churches, on Palm Sunday.
The Triumphal Entry
When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage,
at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,
saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and
immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her;
untie them and bring them to Me.
"If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord
has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."
This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the
"SAY TO THE DAUGHTER OF ZION,
'BEHOLD YOUR KING IS COMING TO YOU,
GENTLE, AND MOUNTED ON A DONKEY,
EVEN ON A COLT, THE FOAL OF A BEAST OF BURDEN.'"
The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed
and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats
on them; and He sat on the coats.
Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and
others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the
The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed,
"Hosanna to the Son of David;
BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
Hosanna in the highest!"
When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred,
saying, "Who is this?"
And the crowds were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus,
from Nazareth in Galilee."
Matthew 21 (NASB)
