Palm Sunday marks Jesus’ arrival to Jerusalem before his arrest on Holy Thursday and crucifixion on Good Friday. It always occurs on the Sunday before Easter. Many Christians worldwide carry palm leaves in processions today to celebrate Jesus riding a donkey into Jerusalem. Nearly 2,000 years ago faithful followers came out to greet Him. They covered His path with palm leaves, flowering branches, and cloth. As He approached they shouted, “Blessed be the King” and “Hosanna.” (Matthew 21:9, Luke 19:38)
