Holy Week opens this morning with the story of Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem where he is hailed as a king. Before the week is out he will have disrupted the business men and women by overturning the tables of the money changers and fallen a long way in the eyes of those cheering him on today. But they don’t understand what his real victory will be. Later, he will share a quiet Passover meal with his disciples, but shortly thereafter he will be handed over to the authorities by one of his own. In short order, the civil authorities choose to let the religious authorities have their way and in a short 12 hours, he has been found guilty, sentenced and is carrying the instrument of his own death through the streets of Jerusalem up to the hill. But that is all for later in the week. For today, we celebrate that grand entrance into Jerusalem with shouts of ‘Hosanna’ and people throwing down palms and coats in front of him as if he is royalty.
