Palm Sunday is recorded in all four of the Gospels :
1.Matthew 21:1-11; 2.Mark 11:1-10; 3.Luke 19:28-38; and 4.John 12:12-18
28 When He had said this, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
29 And it came to pass, when He drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mountain called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples

37 Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, 38 saying:
“ ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!’
Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Mark 11:1-10 — The Triumphal Entry
11 Now when they drew near Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples; 2 and He said to them, “Go into the village opposite you; and as soon as you have entered it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has sat. Loose it and bring it. 3 And if anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it,’ and immediately he will send it here.”
The care that our Lord Jesus takes to give us details about the colt , thats going to carry him into his Triumphal entry .As Alpha and Omega he knows it all..instead of looking at horoscopes,astrology and other star reading , star gazing methods…look to Jesus he knows every detail and every situation in every ones life. A brand new colt ..on which no one sat !!!My Lord got a brand new ride .
4 So they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door outside on the street, and they loosed it. 5 But some of those who stood there said to them, “What are you doing, loosing the colt?”
6 And they spoke to them just as Jesus had commanded. So they let them go. 7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes on it, and He sat on it. 8 And many spread their clothes on the road, and others cut down leafy branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:
‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’
10 Blessed is the kingdom of our father David
That comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest!”
Current day palm tree in Jerusalem — The palm branch was a symbol of triumph and victory in Jewish tradition, and is treated in other parts of the Bible also Leviticus 23:40 and Revelation 7:9. Therefore, the scene of the crowd greeting Jesus by waving palms and spreading his path with palms and their cloaks has become such a tradition …till day many chruchs around the world follow it as a Celebration on palm sunday.
O Christ our God
When Thou didst raise Lazarus from the dead before Thy Passion,
Thou didst confirm the resurrection of the universe.
Wherefore, we like children,
carry the banner of triumph and victory,
and we cry to Thee, O Conqueror of Death,
Hosanna in the highest!
Blessed is He that cometh
in the Name of the Lord.
Join me in Celebration of our Triumphal Lord Jesus Christ !!! Hallelujah !!!! Hosanna in the Highest !!!
