The Triumphal Entry (in Matthew, Mark, Luke & John)

The significance of Jesus’s Triumphal Entry is reinforced by the fact that all the gospel writers give it their attention. And for 2000 years, the Church has made Palm Sunday a focus of its attention leading up to Easter. This moment of Jesus’s ministry is actually characterized by mixed emotions, mixed responses and mixed-up understandings! but the mess of it all is meant to compel us to deeply love Jesus for who he truly is.
