    What Exactly Is Palm Sunday?

    What is Palm Sunday? What is the meaning behind Palm Sunday? Is it a holiday? Who or what cultures observe Palm Sunday and how do they observe it?

    When Jesus arrived on a donkey the week before he was crucified, the Christian people waved palm leaves as he rode down the streets.  Palm Sunday stages the setting for the Last Supper and satisfies prophesy regarding the messiah and Jesus' crucifixion.  All Christian religions celebrate Palm Sunday as a precursor to Easter Sunday where the Risen Lord is celebrated for the ultimate salvation of souls.  The gesture was used to honor as with a king or one of royalty.  Certainly the Prince of Peace would qualify for both.

    The old testament predicted that Israel's enemies would be dealt with and Messiah would come gentle riding on a donkeys colt. (Zechariah 9:9)  When Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey colt the Sunday before Passover, the Jews thought Messiah had come to save them from Rome.  Everybody expected Messiah to take control and save them from Rome. That did not happen. So we see what happens when we try to put God in a box.

    Certainly the people of the Old Testament expected the Messiah to come and establish the reign of God as a political/spiritual kingdom in one go. They did not expect it to be split up the way it has been. The riding of the Messiah on the donkey was in contrast to the conqueror's ride in victory where the captives were led in chains. Jesus was the opposite of that - meek, gentle and humble.  The political establishment of God's kingdom will come at some point. God's desire was to start the spiritual reign first to achieve impossible things like turning the world upside down through forgiveness and grace.
