For Christians around the world, Palm Sunday is the beginning of Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday and includes Holy Thursday and Good Friday, ending at midnight on Holy Saturday. Holy Week ends on Easter Sunday with the celebration of Jesus rising from the tomb.
Many of you may already know this, but Palm Sunday is the day in which Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. His choice of travel is symbolic, because Jesus chose to show people that He came in peace. An examination of history shows us that when a king rode into a city on a horse, he entered for war. If a king rode into a city on a donkey, he came in peace.
