Palm Sunday: What’s Going On?

John 12:16 — “These things understood not his disciples at the first…” The events of Palm Sunday are well-known but initially they were misunderstood, even by Jesus’ own disciples. In this sermon we see how the disciples eventually came to understand the events they themselves were part of.

As we consider the experience of the disciples, we find much encouragement for our Christian lives. Jesus’ disciples still don’t always know what’s going on and that’s OK. Our Lord is more patient and more compassionate than we often imagine Him to be.
