The Text in Context

"...tension is occasioned by the great contrast between the joyful praise of the crowds and Jesus’ weeping: Why does the entrance of our Lord seem so triumphal, when our Lord’s assessment of it implies the opposite? Why do the people rejoice while the Savior weeps?"  Click link to read more.

GROWTH GROUP / PERSONAL REFLECTION QUESTIONS

1. What emotions do you think Jesus might have experienced when entering into Jerusalem? Do these emotions reflect the events of the coming days, including his crucifixion and resurrection?

2. How does the celebration of Palm Sunday invite us to reflect on Jesus' kingship, which concludes with his sacrificial death on the cross?

3. The crowd in Luke 19:28-40 plays a significant role in welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem with praise and celebration. What does their reaction reveal about their expectations of Jesus? How does Jesus respond to their joy and praise?

4. Luke 19:28-40 portrays Jesus' entry into Jerusalem as a deliberate act. What might Jesus' choice of riding on a donkey instead of a horse symbolize and are there lessons can we derive from this?

5. Jesus' response to the Pharisees' demand to silence the crowd is, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out." What does this reveal about Jesus' understanding of his own identity, purpose, and calling?

6. What might God be calling you to in your life?
