EASTER - Jesus' promised return
Overview: (for mums and dads)
The Palm Sunday message is a bittersweet one. It focuses on the Triumphal Entry and the fulfilment of the prophecy in Zechariah 9:9.
Everyone loves a parade. This story is exciting to children when they think about crowds of people cheering and waving leaves and branches, for the waiting was over- the promised King was finally coming into Jerusalem. The city was a very busy place at that time of the year as many people had gathered there to celebrate the Passover. There was great excitement when they saw Jesus approaching the city on a donkey. Many would have heard of the miracles He had performed and some recalled the prophecy in Zechariah. To fulfil the prophecy Jesus would enter the city on a donkey.…… The young donkey that Jesus told the two disciples to get had never been ridden. Unused animals were regarded as especially suitable for religious purposes. (e.g. the cattle that pulled the Ark of the Covenant (1 Samuel 6:7)) .Spreading the cloaks on the ground was also something done for kings The start of what is often referred to as “Holy Week”. took place on Sunday. The excitement was immense at the start of the week but His popularity would be short lived. By the following Sunday Jesus will have been crucified, buried and risen.
