The Triumphal Entry Into Jerusalem

Mentioned in all four gospels, the coming of the King into His city is  significant event in the life of Jesus.

Luke 19:29-44

  • An unusual request, obeyed implicitly (v. 29-35).
  • Crowds of praise (at least for now, v. 36-38).
  • When the Pharisees object to jubilant crowds, Jesus defends them (v. 39-40).
  • And then Jesus weeps over the city of Jerusalem, knowing its missed opportunity and its certain future (v. 41-44).
