Palm Sunday

Date: Sunday 29th March, 2015
Time: 12:01 am

On ‘Palm’ Sunday, Christians remember the day when Jesus rode in triumph into Jerusalem on a donkey.  Crowds gathered, spreading palm leaves, and even their garments, on the road in front of him. They shouted: ‘ Hosanna to the Son of David!  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! ‘

Less than a week later, on the day we now remember as Good Friday, the same crowds were baying for his blood, and screaming: Crucify Him! ‘

If you’d like to read the gospel accounts of the events of ‘Palm Sunday’, please see:  St Matthew 21, vv 1 – 17;  St Mark 11, vv 1 – 11;  St Luke 19, vv 28 – 47; St John 12, vv 12 – 19.
