(Mt. 21:1-11, Mk. 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-40)
The final week of Jesus' life begins with His entry into Jerusalem. Our Lord entered Jerusalem as a king bringing the tidings of love and peace. Contrary to the expectations of the crowd, Christ the Messiah did not become a military figure who would raise the Jews to power, but humbly came to Jerusalem to sacrifice Himself for the salvation of mankind.
