Palm Sunday

He knew what it would mean. When he rode triumphantly into Jerusalem on that donkey, causing crowds of people to follow him, shouting his praises, he knew. This would be the last straw for the religious leaders. This would force their hand. Jesus had to die. Lazarus was their target as well. Both had to die. They couldn’t have this living proof of a divine miracle walking around or the one who had raised him from the dead. Lazarus escaped, but though Jesus had averted their murderous hands many times before, his time had come. God’s plan from eternity had to be accomplished. He had to die. Though they believed they were catching him by surprise, he wasn’t surprised at all.
