The Triumphal Entry is one of the most symbolic and poignant events in the Savior’s life. This was the crowning moment of His short ministry. A moment when those whom He healed, lifted, and led came to herald Him as the King of Kings.
On that first Palm Sunday, they placed Him on a Donkey and lined the path with their robes. They waved palm fronds as was customary when a King came into the city. Yet, while Christ would be their King that Sunday, there were some among them who stood in the courtyard of Pilate’s palace the following Friday and called for His death.
In a world filled with distractions it is easy to forget the Savior. The Triumphal Entry reminds me that He is the King of Kings, not just on Sunday, but always.
