Let's begin, shall we? Jesus neared the time that He had been telling His
Apostles about . . . His crucifixion and death on the Cross, and then
His rising again. I know you must be excited to begin our Christian Palm Sunday Bible study adventure, so let's get after it. As Jesus and His Apostles came near to Jerusalem, He sent two of them ahead of Him and said, Go into the
village up ahead, and as soon as you get there, youíll find an donkey
and her colt tied with her, that has never been sat upon. Loose them
and bring them here. If anyone asks you what youíre
doing, say that the Lord has need of them, and immediately he will
send them. This happened just as Jesus said, to fulfill the prophecy
written by the prophet (Zechariah
The Jesus Palm Sunday Prophecy fulfillment has begun. When the disciples brought the donkey and her colt,
they laid their garments on the animals and set Jesus on the colt.
Crowds of people walking with them laid their own garments in the
street while other people cut down branches from the trees and covered
the street with them. This was the way the people showed that in their
hearts they knew Jesus was the Messiah. This was a royal carpet that
they made for Him, out of palm branches, and thatís why the day is
celebrated known as Palm Sunday.
The disciples and all the people in the crowd cried,
Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is He that comes in the name of
the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. As many times as youíve read, heard,
or sung the word Hosanna, do
you know what it means? The word Hosanna means, pray. It also means
save (us)! It is used as a cry of acclamation and adoration. Pretty
interesting, huh? Another cool thing is that the people were quoting a
Psalm of Davidís when they said this, (Psalms
Some of the people following were with Jesus when He
raised Lazarus from the dead, and they testified of it, many others
followed because they heard that Jesus had done this miracle. The
Pharisees therefore said among themselves, See how you just canít win?
Look, the world is going after Him.
There were certain Greeks (Gentiles) among those who came up to
worship at the feast, and they came to Philip and asked if they could
see Jesus. Philip told Andrew and they both went to tell Jesus. Jesus
said, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
Truly, truly, I tell you, Unless a corn of wheat falls into the ground
and dies, it remains alone, but if it dies, it brings forth much
fruit. He that loves his life shall lose it, and he that hates his
life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve
me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be
and if any man serve me, my Father will honor him.
Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save me from
this hour: but for this cause I came unto this hour. Father, glorify
thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying:
I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
Our Christian Palm Sunday Bible study shares with us the events surrounding the Jesus Palm Sunday Prophecy fulfillment ... The people that stood by and heard it, said that it thundered, others
said, An Angel spoke to Him. Jesus said, This voice didnít come
because of me, but for your sakes.
Now is the judgment of this world, now shall the prince of this world
be cast out.
And I, if I be lifted up from the earth (crucified), will draw all men
unto me. He said this, signifying how He would die.
The people answered Him, We have heard out of the law that Christ
lives for ever. Why do you say, The Son of man must be lifted up? Who
is this Son of man?
Then Jesus said, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while
you have the light, lest darkness come upon you, for he that walks in
darkness knows not where he goes. While you have light, believe in the
light, that you may be the ... Children of the LIGHT
After Jesus said these things, He departed, and hid
Himself from them. But though He had done so many miracles before
them, still they didnít believe in Him,
That the saying of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he
53:1), Lord, who hath
believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been
So they couldnít believe, because as Isaiah also said (Isaiah
6:9-10) He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should
not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be
converted, and I should heal them. Nevertheless among the chief rulers
also many believed in Him; but because of the Pharisees they did not
admit it, for fear that theyíd be put out of the synagogue, because
they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God. Jesus cried
and said, He that believes in me, believes not in me, but in Him that
sent me. And he that sees me sees Him that sent me.
I am come a light into the
world, that whoever believes in me should not live in darkness. And if
any man hears my Words, and doesnít believe, I donít judge him:
because I didnít come to judge the world, but to save the world. He
that rejects me, and doesnít receive my words, has One that judges
him. The word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last
day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, He
gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And
I know that His commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak
therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
It is time for the Christian Palm Sunday Bible study events that occurred bringing forth the Jesus Palm Sunday Prophecy fulfillment. When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, the city was
stirred saying, Who is this? The people from the crowd answered, This
is Jesus, the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. Did you know that the
prophet Daniel told about this very day that Jesus rode into
Jerusalem, too? He not only told that it would happen, but the very
day it would happen. You can read about this in (Daniel
9:25-27), and you can study the details of it at
The 7Oth Week of Daniel.
Time for a Christian Palm Sunday Bible study field trip before we continue to discover the mysterious meaning of the Jesus Palm Sunday Prophecy fulfillment. I truly hope you actually do choose to read the 70th week study and got out your
calculator or a pencil and paper and did all the math for yourself,
because when you realize the magic of the prophecy, it really makes
you open your eyes wide and just say, Wow! Itís a great feeling when
you get confirmation of things that make your faith stronger and even
if you read something, sometimes you just donít believe it as firmly
as if you go through it and figure it out yourself. We are curious, us
Now, the Pharisees didnít like the fact that the
people referred to Jesus as, ĎHe who comes in the name of the Lord,í
because they thought it was blasphemous. They said to Jesus, Stop your
disciples. Jesus answered them, I tell you, if they kept quiet, the
stones would immediately cry out. You have to love the eloquence Jesus
had with words, and the humor He used. Had He said ... My identity is
gonna be revealed one way or another, it just wouldnít have had the
same effect as what He chose to say.
Jesus has now arrived in Jerusalem in our Christian Palm Sunday Bible study ... When Jesus saw the city of Jerusalem ahead of Him, it brought Him to tears and He cried, If you had only known the things
needed for peace! But, now theyíre hidden from your eyes. (If they had
only not hardened their hearts. But now the time of the Jewish people
was ending with Jesusí visit and they didnít accept Him or believe in
Him.) The days will come when your enemies will encircle you and besiege you on every side, and
theyíll lay you and your children within you (Jerusalem and itís
people) flat on the ground. They wonít leave a stone unturned because
you didnít know the time of your visitation (the time your King came
to see you).
Jesus was giving a very sad prophecy during the Jesus Palm Sunday Prophecy fulfillment ... Jesus was talking about what will happen in the End to Jerusalem in 70 AD, as youíll also find in (Luke
Then Jesus went into the Temple of God, and found
people selling oxen, sheep and doves. The money changers were also
doing business in the Temple. Jesus made a whip out of small cords and
drove them all out of the Temple, pouring out the changers money and
overthrowing the tables. He said, It is written, My house shall be
called of all nations, the House of Prayer; but youíve turned it into
a den of thieves. The zeal of your house has consumed me. The
disciples remembered then, that David had written that long ago, (Psalms
69:9). As well as the Jesus Palm Sunday Prophecy fulfillment ... This was also
prophesied by (Isaiah
56:7 and Jeremiah 7:11).
Then the Jewish people said to Him, Are you showing
us a sign by doing these things? Jesus answered them, Destroy this
Temple and in three days
Iíll raise it up. The people said among themselves, It took forty six
years to build this Temple, and youíll rebuild it in three days? But
Jesus was talking about the Temple of His body. (Later, when Jesus was
risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this and
they believed what Jesus said).
The blind and the lame came to Jesus then, in the
Temple, and He healed them. There were also children there singing,
Hosanna to the son of David. When the priests and scribes saw the
miracles that Jesus performed and the children glorifying Him, it
annoyed them greatly. Jesus said to them, Yea, havenít you ever read,
Out of the mouths of babes you have perfected praise? Again Jesus was
quoting Davidís words (Psalm
8:2). The chief priests
and scribes then started looking for a reason to kill Jesus because
all the people were so astonished by His teaching, but they couldnít
figure out what to do. After that, Jesus left the Temple and went
outside of Jerusalem into Bethany and stayed there through the night.
