The King We Need

  • by

Palm Sunday 2023. Pastor Shaq Hager talks through the story of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem as told by Matthew. It’s a story with a historical precedent. Jesus wasn’t the only “conqueror” to ride into Jerusalem for whom the townspeople laid out palm branches. They’ve already performed this ritual once, years prior. The story calls into question the desires of the people of Jerusalem, as well as our desires today. What kind of King do we really want? A king of war or a King of Peace? Who do we want to reign over us – a culture warrior or Jesus?
