Palm Sunday Year A
- Palm Gospel: Matthew 21.1-11
- Passion Sunday: Isaiah 50.4-9
- Philippians 2.5-11
When Jesus rode into Jerusalem he came as a conqueror, but not as conqueror is usually understood. He is not seeking to topple the Romans. What he seeks to topple is human misunderstanding of the divine and, following from that, what it means to be truly human. The enemies he will confront are fear and death.
