PALM SUNDAY SERMON OUTLINES

by J. Gerald Harris

Jesus is making His triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem. It is a remarkable event recorded by all four Gospels. It is quite unlike anything else recorded about the Lord Jesus in the New Testament. Up until this time Jesus had been withdrawing himself as much as possible from public notice. He had retired to the wilderness. He did not court attention. He avoided anything that hinted of public display...

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, " Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest." (Matt.21:9) The Sunday before Easter Sunday is called Palm Sunday. It is scriptural to call this day Palm Sunday because in...

Attention: We are starting a series of special Easter messages on Sunday Mornings and Sunday Evenings that will lead up to Easter Sunday Morning with the resurrection of Christ! We will examine the last week of Jesus' earthly ministry. During this busy week, the Lord will come into Jerusalem on a colt of a donkey, and have the masses hail Him with cries of…

As we open to John 12, we are looking at the final account of Christ's Triumphal entrance into Jerusalem for His final week of His earthly ministry. After the other three Gospel writers had penned their inspired accounts of this Palm Sunday event in Matthew 21, Mark 11, and Luke 21: more than 30 years later, the last living Apostle, John...

The Events of Palm Sunday by Dan Rodgers
Today we celebrate Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. Christians around the world recognize Palm Sunday as the day Jesus made His triumphal entry into the city of Jerusalem. On this day, prophecy was fulfilled; the prophet Zechariah had recorded this event some 400 years earlier. In Zech 9:9, he said, ''Rejoice greatly, O daughter...

In the Shadow with Jesus: Palm Sunday by Stan Coffey
Now today once again I want to call us to the place called Calvary. Calvary where we come with our sin and receive His salvation. Calvary where we come with our ruin and receive His righteousness. Calvary, the place where we come with our darkness and receive His light. Calvary, the place where we come...

JESUS CHRIST was about to walk across history's stage for the last time. Having spent the night with friends in Bethany, He prepared to go to Jerusalem. Use your ingenious imagination and come visit the scene. I had the joy of being there just days ago. Bethany is on the eastern slopes of the Mount of Olives. It was and is a small village...

I sometimes refer to Palm Sunday as ''schizophrenic Sunday.'' We enter Jerusalem triumphantly with Jesus our king. We end the day with our king mocked, scourged and brutally crucified. The emotional difference between the two events disorients us. Some people will miss attending services on Good Friday so Palm Sunday serves double...

by Ron Clarkson

Welcome: We want to extend a special invitation to you to join us this Friday night for a special, reflective evening as we focus on the suffering that Jesus experienced. Then on Sunday, please be our guests for one of the Easter services as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This morning we are going to take...

Our next section actually relates to prayer although the authors did not make the obvious connection. I love the definition of a sacrament: ''The outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive grace.'' Great definition! The baptismal water...

The coronation of Queen Victoria took place on 28 June 1838, just over a year after she succeeded to the throne at the age of 18. The procession to and from the ceremony at Westminster Abbey was witnessed by unprecedentedly huge crowds, as the new railways made it easier for an estimated 400,000 to come to...

The sun was rising rapidly. It was beginning to shoot its golden arrows across the horizon to gild the sky and curtain off the dawn that would bring a new day to the history-filled city of Jerusalem. This is the festive season of Passover. The old city was filled with pilgrims, visitors, and travelers who had come from many countries to...

If God and Jesus are hard for you and faith does not make sense, please allow me to make a suggestion. Faith in God cannot be adequately explained by human reason. As humans we are finite and limited in knowledge and understanding. Scripture says that as humans we are like a flower that blooms, then quickly fades and...

In the calendar of the Western Church today is the Sunday which is known as Palm Sunday. It is the Sunday preceding Easter Day which commemorates the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Churches are decorated with palms today in remembrance of the waving of the palm branches. There are processions in Roman…

A. ILLUSTRATION OF TREES IN MY LIFE. 1. Forts my friend and I would build. We would fight off the enemy. The enemy was his older brother and his friend. 2. Trees where I would carve my girl- friend's initials. 3. The tree in my grandfather's yard where I would play while my parents and other family members sat on the porch...

On March 10th, 2011, the Lakers played the Heat in Miami and lost, 94 - 88. Two and a half hours later, as the clock lurched toward midnight, and as the clean-up crew stuffed popcorn boxes and wrappers into trash bags, Kobe Bryant was still on the Heat's gym floor, launching hundreds of jumpers at the basket. He had returned to the Heat's…

Two processions entered Jerusalem on a spring day in the year A.D. 30. It was the beginning of the week of Passover, the most sacred week of the Jewish year. In the centuries since, Christians have celebrated this day as Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week. With its climax of Good Friday and Easter, it is the most sacred week of the Christian year…

After seeing the pictorial dramatization of the events leading up to Easter, does the Easter Message end with the empty tomb of Christ? Or does the 'concept' of ''It's Friday, but Sunday's coming'' extend beyond the Easter story? Is the story still going on? And IS there still more to come?Read along with me this morning...

A man was walking down a street when he noticed in a store window a beautiful painting of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. He stood there gazing at the picture for the longest than realized that a little boy was standing beside him. He patted the little boy on the head and said, "Son, what does that mean?" The little boy said, "Doncha know? That…
