When Jesus came, people were excited because the scriptures spoke of a promised King who would rise up and rule from Jerusalem. In the first century A.D. many expected Jesus to crush the Mighty Roman Empire to its foundations and rule from there. That's why the crowds shouted "Hosanna!" Hosanna is Hebrew for "save us", "save us now!" But when Jesus came, He did something unexpected. He rode in on a baby donkey instead of a mighty horse. In this, Jesus was making a statement, a statement to come as a servant to save souls, which would attune people's hearts to, through Christ, get right with God. At a later time (a time which is approaching), Jesus would rule and reign forever on earth, with death and sin no longer a problem. What is Palm Sunday all about? This very dynamic, as Pastor Troy Billow explains.
