No Ordinary Parade

Date: April 14, 2019

On this Palm Sunday we hear about Jesus’ humble entry into Jerusalem. Jerusalem was a conquered city that was living under foreign and oppressive rule yet has a king enter in humbly on a donkey instead of a horse — signifying peace not war. Jesus enters through a gate called Bab el Rahmeh – The Mercy Gate (which years on was sealed shut so no king or false messiah could enter in through it).

When Jesus entered he is greeted by people laying down palm leaves at his feet, signifying praise and honour to the Jewish people. Then, he goes into ‘the heart of the city’, a broken temple, where he overturns tables and drives out those using extortion to keep people from freely worshipping God.

And it’s only the start of the week…Make way for the King!
