Zechariah 9:9 states, “See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey,” and thereby prophesizing Jesus triumphant entry into Jerusalem the week before his arrest, death, and resurrection. Much like the bald eagle, Uncle Sam, and the American flag, the palm branch was a powerful nationalistic symbol for the Israel. The crowd shouted “hosanna” (Matthew 21:9), which means save us, waved palm branches, and then laid them in the road as he entered into Jerusalem. There can be no doubt that this raised the level of tension in Jerusalem with the Roman occupation army and the religious leadership. Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week and begins with the Liturgy of the Palms and a reading from the Passion Narrative. We are in year B in the lectionary which means that the Passion Narrative will be read from the Gospel of Mark (On Good Friday, the Passion Narrative is read from the Gospel of John). We still celebrate the Holy Eucharist as it is a reminder that even as we begin Holy Week, we are in joyous anticipation of Easter.
