Palm Sunday

A Palm Sunday narrative based on Matthew 21:1-10

A  Palm Sunday narration of Matthew 21:1-10, after which many were asking the question, “Who is this?”

Since Palm Sunday is the beginning of the Easter week, this film is therefore a great addition to your Palm Sunday programming. In fact, it is ideal  for the Easter week in general, as a narrative reflection on Palm Sunday events. Throughout the narrative, we see how it all started to unfold the day that Jesus made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, while riding on a donkey. Most of all, we are reminded of the prophetic words spoken of Him, which are so often sung: Hosanna! Glory to God in the Highest!

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

21 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”

4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

5 “Say to Daughter Zion,
‘See, your king comes to you,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”[a]

6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna[b] to the Son of David!”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[c]

“Hosanna[d] in the highest heaven!”

10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
