Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus triumphant entry into Jerusalem . People laid palm branches down in welcome and sang Psalm 118: 25-26 “blessed is he who comes in the name of the lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord” He came as savior of all people. But within a week they had turned on him , encouraged by the Sanhedrin. But it fulfilled the prophecies from the bible about his persecution and crucifixion.
