Hosanna!- Oh Jerusalem

Oh Jerusalem-
thinking of your doors and entries
walkways and paths
this Palm Sunday.
Luke 19: 37 "And as he was drawing near-
 already on the way down the Mount of Olives-
the whole multitude of his disciples 
began to rejoice and praise God 
with a loud voice for all the 
mighty works that they had seen,saying.
Blessed is the King 
who comes in the name of the Lord!
Peace in heaven 
and glory in the highest!"
v.39 And some of the Pharisees
 in the crowd said to him, 
"Teacher, rebuke your disciples". 
"He answered, 
"I tell you, if these were silent, 
the very stones would cry out."
I think my whole life 
when I heard this verse read - 
I pictured small rocks and pebbles
 along the path.

The massive stone in the photo above
 is what might have been
more abundant 
in the place where Jesus 
entered the city of Jerusalem.
Large rocks, Large- scale. 
 Jerusalem could NOT be silent
when THE KING entered.
Triumphal entry.
The start of Holy Week.
The beginning of the Passion.
Bible Marginalia Series- #149
Blessed is He Who Comes 
in the Name of the Lord.
