Palm Sunday Crowds and Signs
Jesus’s entrance into Jerusalem was one of the high points of his ministry. The disciples expected rejection, but he was welcomed as king. Jesus wasn’t so quickly impressed. He warned the crowds, as he often did, that to be a true faller would mean rejection, suffering, and death to self. This Easter we are reminded that to follow Christ often requires stepping away from the crowd and taking up our own cross.
