This Sunday is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. We are going to look at Matthew’s remembrance of that fateful week when the promises of God came alive. The people of Israel had been waiting for centuries for the mysterious “Man of Sorrows” whom Isaiah had written about. Their Messiah had finally arrived, but those in power, both the Religious leaders in the temple and Rome itself, did not like the Kingdom Jesus was promising to usher in. Kingdom politics has a servant leader, a cross for a throne, and thorns for a crown. Much different than those who were running the show the day Jesus descended into His city for the last time.
