Bible Verses: Psalm 51:1-12; John 12:20-33 | Daniel Glaze

Palm Sunday has another name: Passion Sunday. There is the parade, and there is the realization of where that parade leads. The parade celebrating Jesus is a triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Yes, it is celebratory, but it is also a journey to his death. We may be tempted to go from waving our palm branches to shouting “He is risen!” on Easter Sunday, but that would be a mistake. There is spiritual blessing in taking the journey with Jesus to the cross.
