Palm Sunday: Jesus Comes To Jerusalem To Celebrate Passover

John 12:12-18 (King James Version)

12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,

13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

14 And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written,

15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.

17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.

18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

Photo is an artist's bronze representation of Jesus after washing the feet of his disciples. The statue is on the campus of Howard Payne University in Brownwood Texas. The plaque reads "Do As I Have Done. "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you." John 13:15 "
