Many people have a favorite Christmas Story or even Easter story, but I have a favorite Palm Sunday story. I’ll get to that later, but first let’s remember the reason behind this day:
And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two of the disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her, on which no one has ever sat, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ you shall say: ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.'” So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” And they said, “The Lord has need of it.”
This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet saying:
“Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.”
