There’s a lot going on when Jesus enters Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.
He knows what He’s getting into, and we know He’s not exactly thrilled about it (“My Father, if there is any way get Me out of this” - Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane). But He’s determined to go there.
When He arrives, He’ll disappoint His followers. They’re ready for a military/political victory.
Jesus, on the other hand, was ready to take up His cross. And die.
He was a great disappointment to many who laid so many expectations on Him.
He went anyway.
