Palm Sunday: From Triumph to Tragedy

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Category: Church Seasons

Jesus' final week of life is marked by moving from triumph to tragedy, which is the opposite of what we typically want to see happen. We celebrate his Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem only to see him dead a few days later, where is the good news in that? First, we see Jesus' kingship on full display, we also see his control subtly but powerfully on display, and thirdly we see how his death upends our understanding of how God redeems sinners.
