Who is this King of Glory Palm Sunday by Jean-Hippolyte Flandrin
Hi Friends, how are you this Palm Sunday?
I want to tell you a little bit about it. Palm Sunday is a Christian Tradition. It is a movable day, always the Sunday previous to Easter.
Wanna learn a little about it? It’s interesting. I always like to learn something new.
Palm Sunday commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. This is mentioned in the bible and in each of the four canonical Gospels.
Amongst the Christians, people would go to church on Palm Sunday they would be given a blessed palm branch or other native trees, olive, willow or yew.
This is because according to their history, these palm branches represent the ones that were scattered in front of Jesus Christ as he walked into Jerusalem.
This day, which is always a Sunday, is also named after the tree that is used locally. So, we can have Palm Sunday, Olive Sunday, Yew Sunday or as a generic, Branch Sunday. It is also called Passion Sunday.
Palm Sunday also marks the beginning of the Holy Week according to the Christian tradition.
A Bit of History
According to the Bible, Jesus entered Jerusalem triumphantly and riding on a donkey. The donkey is the symbol of peace. A king would have ridden a horse, but Jesus was coming in peace, so he rode a friendly donkey.
People put branches of palm on his way as a symbol that he was worthy of the highest honor.
It is called Passion Sunday as he weeps and foretells his coming passion and the suffering that awaits him there in the city during what we call the Holy week.
In the days to come, Jesus Christ would be judged, jailed and crucified to then reborn as the child of God.
Stay tuned this week because there are countries where Jesus Christ Passion Celebrations are fantastic #TraditionsOfTheWorld.
