Palm Sunday

Today we celebrate the arrival of Jesus into Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week in the Christian church.  The video clip below is from Jesus Christ, Superstar, and it portrays the triumphal entry in the modern context of a ticker-tape parade.  In it, you can feel the hatred of the Pharisees towards Jesus.  You can sense the joy of the crowd and see the frustration of Judas.  And if you listen closely to to lyrics, you can hear the expectations people have of Jesus begin to change even as they celebrate.  They thought they were there to crown a new King.  They just didn't understand what His kingdom would be.  Enjoy, and have a most blessed Palm Sunday!
