Hosanna!

Session 4.14 for April 1, 2012

In Mark 11:1-11, we hear the story that is behind our celebration of Palm Sunday. Our celebration of Palm Sunday may leave us with the picture of a grand procession announcing the entry of Christ. The real kingly procession, however, is simple and humble featuring Jesus entering Jerusalem on a mere colt with a ragged bunch of disciples. Once again, Jesus shows people that they can do things a different way. Jesus’ way challenges the status quo and reminds us that power can be harmful to those who have little power. Jesus’ way shows us that those who come in the name of the Lord are the ones who are blessed – not the ones who have all of the power or prestige.
