Mental Prayer Support – Holy Week – 3: Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem
This is a series of 10 Christian Meditations for the Holy Week.
Today we’ll be with Jesus in the palm Sunday, in His triumphal entry into Jerusalem when He is acclaimed by the people as a king, then a few days later, scourged and killed as an outlaw.
Luke 19: 36-40
As he rode along, the people were spreading their cloaks on the road; and now as he was approaching the slope of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of his disciples began to praise God aloud with joy for all the mighty deeds they had seen. They proclaimed:
“Blessed is the king who comes
in the name of the Lord.
Peace in heaven
and glory in the highest.”
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”
Mk 15: 9-14
Pilate answered, “Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?” For he knew that it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed him over. But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have him release Barabbas for them instead. Pilate again said to them in reply, “Then what [do you want] me to do with [the man you call] the king of the Jews?” They shouted again, “Crucify him.” Pilate said to them, “Why? What evil has he done?” They only shouted the louder, “Crucify him.”
