Palm Sunday 2023
Palm Sunday (also called 'Passion Sunday') is a Christian holiday celebrated to
commemorate Jesus Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
Taking place two days before the last supper, Palm Sunday is a very important holiday in Christianity, as it marks the beginning of ‘Passion’ — the final events of Jesus’s life, including
his death and resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem was preceded by him raising Lazarus from the
dead, causing a large crowd to believe in his claim as the Messiah.
Jesus sent two disciples to obtain the donkey he then rode into town.
As he descended from the Mount of Olives, the crowds that had gathered for a feast laid
down their clothes as well as palm leaves from palm trees, welcoming him to
Jerusalem with royal enthusiasm.
As he rode, the admiring crowd shouted various words of praise, including “Hosanna!”
(Hebrew for ‘save us’) and “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the lord!”
Adding to its significance, this event was prophesied in Zechariah 9:9 in the Old Testament:
"See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding
on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey."
