Triumphal Entry

triumphal-entryMy children drew the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on the week ending with His crucifixion. The people were hailing Him as king and saying, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”

The Pharisees wanted Jesus to rebuke the people for glorifying Him, but He told the Pharisees that if He quieted the people, even the very rocks would cry out in praise to Him!

He always had supernatural wisdom which surprised and silenced them.

I find it ironic and poignant that these very people who were shouting hosanna’s right now will be shouting “Crucify Him!” near the end of this week.
