Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. At the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire was in control of Jerusalem. The enslaved Jewish people looked eagerly to the crowd-feeding, miracle-working Jesus as their political savior. What they did not realize was that their primary need was not political liberation, but spiritual deliverance. That was Jesus' purpose for coming. As the Son of God, he came to free mankind from the bondage of sin and death. One day, Jesus will return again. At that time, all will hail him as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
