Palm Sunday Story

QUESTION: Palm Sunday Story - Is it Accurate?


The Palm Sunday story is recorded in all four gospels (Matthew 21, Mark 11, Luke 19, John 12). Four different perspectives–-a tax collector, Palestinian Jew, Gentile physician, and a fisherman–-provide a harmonious account.

Three of the gospel writers (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) devote a full third of their eyewitness accounts to Palm Sunday and Holy Week.

Jesus, Israel’s King. The Gospel of John presents Jesus as Israel’s King and dedicates the entire last half to Jesus’ final week leading up to His crucifixion and Resurrection:
    They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna!"
    "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
    "Blessed is the King of Israel!" 14Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written, "Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey's colt" (John 12:13–15).

    All four of the gospels record the reciting of Psalm 118:26, on the lips of those who cried out to be saved by “He who comes in the name of the Lord.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
