Hosanna in The Highest

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'” Matthew 21:4-5

Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament prophecy of riding on a Donkey entering the city of Jerusalem, but why a donkey? Why not a might horse? Because Jesus is The Prince of Peace, he came to save the entire world not wage war on the Romans. Many Jews still didn’t understand this and rejected him as there Messiah

A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” Matthew 21:8-9

But there are many who recognized who Jesus is, The King of Kings, our Messiah. But why lay down Palm Branches? The Palm Branch in Jewish was a symbol of victory and triumph, and to lay them down in someone’s presence shows great honor. The fact that everyone was laying down Palm branches for Jesus and saying Hosanna reveals that many recognized and accepted Jesus as The Messiah

 

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.” Matthew 21:10-11

But there were some who still didn’t know Jesus, do you know Jesus? Do you know why he came here for you and what he did for you? This month we will be reflecting on the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ God Bless
