What if…Jesus Skipped Palm Sunday?

 

We are so familiar with the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. We call it Palm Sunday, remembering the palm branches dropped before Jesus as he rode a donkey into the city. We know it as the event that marks the start of the final week of Jesus life before his crucifixion. But I wonder if we really understand the significance of it all. The story of the triumphal entry is one of the few incidents in the life of Jesus which appears in all four Gospel accounts. Putting the four accounts together, it becomes clear that the triumphal entry was a significant event, not only to the people of Jesus’ day, but to Christians throughout history. What if…Jesus had hidden away from the crowds, what if…he stopped the chanting crowd, what if…we didn’t have this account in the gospels? What would we be missing? We might know the details but miss grasping the meaning of the detail. We would be all the poorer in our understanding of Jesus and his mission, if this event was not recorded. Come and find out why.
