Palm Sunday 2023: Triumphal Entry

Pastor Kevin Rutledge - 4/2/2023 10:00 AM

On Palm Sunday, the sermon will focus on the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, where he was hailed by the people as a king. The sermon will highlight the excitement and celebration that surrounded this event, as people spread palm branches and shouted "Hosanna" in recognition of Jesus' arrival.

However, the sermon will then move beyond the surface level of triumph and explore the deeper meanings of this event. The focus will shift to Jesus' humility and sacrifice, as he knew that his entry into Jerusalem would ultimately lead to his crucifixion.
