On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (03/29/21), Hank takes a brief detour in his series on the Gospel of Matthew, skipping all the way from chapter 4 to chapter 21, where the account of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem is located. This is, of course, celebrated by Christians as Palm Sunday, which the Western Church observed yesterday and the Eastern Church will celebrate in a month’s time. On Palm Sunday, we celebrate Jesus riding into Jerusalem, not as a political messiah, but rather in humility and peace in fulfillment of Zechariah’s famed prophecy: “See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9 NIV). Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem announced the establishment of the Kingdom of God. It was a foretaste of the time that He will gather His perfected bride and carry her over the threshold of Jordan into a New Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God.
