Hosanna in the highest!

Good morning readers!

As you may already know, Palm Sunday is approaching. I’ve made a bulletin cover for Palm Sunday which was inspired by Matthew 21. In Matthew 21 we read about the Triumphal Entry. I absolutely love this passage for so many reasons and I won’t get into all of them. As Jesus enters Jerusalem on a donkey, not a horse a donkey the people are gathered around shouting hosanna and praising him. And some people asked who he was. They’re answer? This is Jesus the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee. One of the many reasons I love this passage is because we read about this in the Old Testament written way before Jesus came down to earth.(Zechariah 9:9) You can actually find a bulletin cover for the passage from Zechariah on this blog. Anyway, I hope you’re as excited about Easter as I am. Enjoy!

Matthew 21

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”

4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

5 “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.’”[a]

6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna[b] to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[c]

“Hosanna[d] in the highest heaven!”

10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

I actually did not design the palm branches in this bulletin, I found the design at a website called creation swap great website with some free church graphics. Here is the link to the image I used of the palm branch.(http://www.creationswap.com/media/11294)
