The Savior's Triumphal entry into Jerusalem

On the week before his his death, on the day now known as Palm Sunday, the Savior entered into Jerusalem on a donkey, fulfilling Zechariah's prophecy in the Old Testament which said "Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an [donkey's] colt."

He was thronged by people who had palm leaves, who greeted him by saying "Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord."

So much would change during this week after Christ's Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. This was the last time he would be so accepted, as later the Jews called for his death, and the real triumph would come much later...(more tomorrow)
