Palm Monday

April 2, 2023


This is Palm Sunday, the day we celebrate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem riding on a donkey. But this event happened over 2,000 years ago. Are we sure it took place on a Sunday? If you look to the Gospels for proof, you will find just a single clue in John 12, which says that six days before Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, to the home of his friends Lazarus, Mary, and Martha, and that “the next day” Jesus came into Jerusalem (12:1, 12).
