Palm Sunday is when Jesus rode into town on a donkey and they put down palm branches declaring, “Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” It was a declaration of His Kingship. They had no idea that in just a few days he would be wiped, beaten, scourged, and hung on a cross to die for the sins of them, you, and me. But on the third day He would arise from the dead to conquer death, hell, and the grave.
