Holy Land Revelations Part 3: Waved Palms to Pierced Palms

Happy Holy Week!

The breeze picked up as we began our descent walking down the Mount of Olives to the gates of Jerusalem. The same road Jesus took. I can only imagine the excited cheering of the great crowd surrounding Jesus on that day of His Triumphal Entry almost 2000 years ago.

“They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’
‘Blessed is the King of Israel.’

Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written;
‘Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.'”–John 12:13-15. 🙌🙌🙌
Oh, how fickle they were.
We are.
I am.
To sing “Hosanna!” on Sunday and “Crucify Him” on Friday.

From waved palms to pierced palms.

May this Holy Week and Easter be the most transformational of our lives. Savor every moment as we remember Jesus’ immeasurable love and sacrifice for us. The best is yet to come.
