Palm Sunday

Hello Apex Family,

It is Palm Sunday, of course, and so today we begin to remember the events that were set into motion that week long ago, propelling Jesus from a teacher and miracle worker to Substitute and Redeemer as He would assume our place on that cross one week later.

It all started rather triumphantly...

Matthew 21:1-11

As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on
the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying
to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once
you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by
her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says
anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them,
and he will send them right away."

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the

"Say to the Daughter of Zion,
'See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'"

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed
them. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed
their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. A very
large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while
others cut branches from the trees and spread them on
the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those
that followed shouted,

"Hosanna to the Son of David!"
"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Hosanna in the highest!"

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was
stirred and asked, "Who is this?"

The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from
Nazareth in Galilee."

...and so it began.
