Greetings EM family,

I pray that you are doing well physically and spiritually.


This coming Sunday is the Palm Sunday. It marks the day of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem humbly and in peace on a donkey, instead of on a horse as a war-waging king.

This event was so significant that all four Gospels mentioned it (Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19).

The Synoptic Gospels especially, recorded how Jesus instructed two disciples to locate the donkey that Jesus would be sitting on. This fulfilled the prophecy foretold by Zechariah:


Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!

Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey,

on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

(Zechariah 9:9, ESV)


According to the Gospel of John, when the crowd heard that Jesus was coming into Jerusalem, they took palm branches and went out to meet him, and shout:


“Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”

(John 12:13b, ESV)


Which came from Psalm 118:26


Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD! We bless you from the house of the LORD.

(Psalm 118:26, ESV)


The following is a famous painting “Entry of Christ into Jerusalem (1320 A.D.) by an Italian painter named Pietro Lorenzetti.

Painting by Pietro Lorenzetti (1320 A.D.)



One day soon, all the faithful will be wearing white robes, holding palm branches before the throne of God and the Lamb:


After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation,

from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, 

clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, 

(Revelation 7:9, ESV)


Hope to see you there one day!
