Palm Sunday- Up to Jerusalem

                                                                              C. Denninger
And Jesus and His disciples
 were going up to Jerusalem.
Mark 10:32

 The prophesy of Zechariah 
comes to be on this Sunday-
 Zechariah 9:9

                                                                                      C. Denninger
Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, 
to Bethphage and Bethany,
 at the Mount of Olives, 
Jesus sent two of his disciples and said to them, 
"Go into the village in front of you, 
and immediately as you enter it 
you will find a colt tied,
 on which no one has ever sat.
 Untie it and bring it.
 If anyone says to you, 
"Why are you doing this?" say, 
"The Lord has need of it
 and will send it back here immediately."
And they went away and found a colt
 tied at a door outside in the street,
 and they untied it.
 And some of those standing there said to them,
What are you doing, untying the colt?"
And they told them what Jesus had said,
 and they let them go.
And they brought the colt to Jesus 
and there their cloaks on it, and he sat on it.
And many spread their clocks on the road,
 and others spread leafy branches
 that they had cut from the fields.
And those who went before 
and those who followed were shouting,
"Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes
 in the name of the Lord!"
Blessed is the coming kingdom
 of our father David!
 Hosanna in the Highest!
And he entered Jerusalem
 and went into the temple.
And when he had looked around at everything, 
as it was already late,
 he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

Mark 11: 1-11
