April 5, 2020 – Palm Sunday/Sunday of the Passion
Psalm 118:19-29; John 12:12-19; Matthew 27:11-66
“Palms to Passion” - Sermon Text: Philippians 2:8b - Rev. Shayne Jonker
Holy Week begins on the road from Jericho to Jerusalem. Jesus procures a donkey and His disciples hail Him with palm branches. They make a royal highway for Him with their coats and shout, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” The mood, however, shifts quickly from palms to passion, from triumph to crucifixion. This is no ordinary King. He dies for His people and kingdom. Never has the world seen such a King as this one.
