Palm/Passion Sunday Sermon: “A Royal Pain”
Jesus enters the capital city of Jerusalem the very embodiment of prophet Zechariah’s vision of the Victorious King. But this is a humble king whose royalty finds its highest expression nailed to a Roman cross, “King of the Jews.” In Matthew’s telling of the Jesus story, the one born king in Bethlehem becomes the king executed in Jerusalem.
