The Entrance of the Servant King

indexThis past Sunday, we journeyed with Jesus and his disciples into Jerusalem. It was Palm Sunday, the celebration of The Entrance of the Servant King. This comment from the ESV Study Bible is a nice summation of the scene in Mark 11:1-11…

The Triumphal Entry takes place at the beginning of Passover week, which recalls the Jewish people’s liberation from Egyptian slavery; the pilgrims now anticipate the messianic liberation from Rome’s oppression. The claims of the disciples are ultimately true, but it will not be Rome that is defeated now but Satan, sin, and death. All enemies of righteousness will one day see the authority of Messiah.
