Palm Sunday, this is the day of Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem for the great Passover Feast. He did so along with perhaps as many as 2.5 million others of this pilgrimage feast. Along the road from Bethany to Jerusalem, a two mile stretch, grew palm trees and these were used to celebrate the arrival of Jesus, about whom much was said and upon whom were great expectations. He rode, not on a full grown animal, but upon a young donkey whose small stature meant Jesus would have had to hold His legs up off the ground. The event prompted the Pharisees to worry since it seemed the whole world held Him in a high place. Then among the throng that came for Passover were some Greeks who approached Philip hoping to gain an audience with Jesus.
