Palm Sunday | Behind the Veil Christian Ministries

May 5, 2018


Welcome to Behind the Veil Christian Ministries, where we celebrate and embrace the rich traditions of faith and beliefs. In this article, we delve into the significance and celebration of Palm Sunday, a momentous day on the Christian calendar. Join us at Northstar Church as we commemorate the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem, marking the beginning of Holy Week.

What is Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday, also known as Passion Sunday, is a significant day in the Christian faith, commemorating Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem before his crucifixion. It falls on the Sunday before Easter and sets the stage for the events leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection.

History and Traditions

Palm Sunday has its roots in the biblical narrative found in the Gospels. According to the accounts, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, and a large crowd welcomed him by spreading palm branches and their cloaks on the road. This act symbolized homage and honor towards Jesus as the Messiah. The crowd shouted "Hosanna" - an expression of adoration and praise.

Today, churches around the world continue the tradition by distributing palm branches to the congregants. This act symbolizes the triumphal entry of Jesus and the acknowledgment of his lordship. Many churches also hold processions, reenacting the events of that day as a way of reliving the biblical story.

The Significance of Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday holds profound significance as it signifies the beginning of Holy Week, leading up to Easter Sunday. It serves as a reminder of Jesus' purpose and mission on Earth - to provide salvation and redemption for humanity.

As Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowd's excitement quickly shifted to disillusionment and betrayal. This stark contrast foreshadowed the dramatic events that would unfold during the crucifixion and resurrection. Palm Sunday serves as a reminder of the emotional rollercoaster that Jesus and his followers experienced during this pivotal week.
