SLIDEWhat does Palm Sunday and why is it important
Palm Sunday is the day that the church remembers Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. Jesusrode into Jerusalem on a donkey. As he did this a very large crowd put their cloaks in front of Jesus and cut down branches from the tree. John’s gospel said that the branches were palm branches. As Jesus rode on the colt the crowd shouted out, “Hosannah! Blessed is the one whocomes in the name of the Lord! Hosannah.”We can find the word Hosanna in Psalm 118:25.
