Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!
Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and having salvation,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey. ~ Zechariah 9:9
It was predicted by one of the Old Testament prophets.
The story is relayed in all four Gospels:
The crowd shouted “Hosanna!” which in Hebrew means “Saved” and “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” – a phrase from Psalm 118:26 – again from the Old Testament.
He entered the city of Jerusalem in triumph in fulfillment of the Holy Scriptures that the Jews knew by heart. The crowd proclaimed Him the Savior, the Messiah – the Anointed One.
Everything seemed great. What happened in four days to warrant Jesus’ arrest and execution?
In this series, A Walk Through Holy Week, I will attempt to explain the importance of the events of Holy Week through Resurrection Sunday and the days immediately after.
