Palm Sunday

Today we talk about Palm Sunday today.

The palm tree has the meaning of victory.
Palm Sunday means the day Jesus entered Jerusalem to save people through crucified on the cross.

That time, Israel was under the ruling of Rome. So most of Israel thought that Jesus will become political king of Israel, to save them from Rome.

John 12:13
They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the King of Israel!”
When Jesus was entering Jerusalem, People wave the palm tree as a symbol of victory and welcome him. We remember the day Jesus entered Jerusalem. Call as a Palm Sunday.

As mention in the Bible Zechariah 9:9
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
Jesus rides a donkey when he entered Jerusalem. Israel welcome him as king and shout that “Hosanna” that meaning is “please save us”

Here one thing we have to remember is People who shout “Hosanna”
after some day. They shout that “Crucified him. Crucify Jesus, Crucify Jesus on the Cross” Jesus knew that they will betray, and they will request to Rome to crucify him. But Jesus forgave them and loves them.

We need to keep the grace and love of Jesus Christ in our heart. And we never betray him again.
