Celebrating Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday Christians celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem the week before his death. Sometimes called "Passion Sunday," Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.

The Bible reveals that when Jesus entered Jerusalem, the crowds greeted him by waving palm branches and covering his path with them. The biblical account of Palm Sunday can be found in Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44; and John 12:12-19.
