Palm Sunday Sermon

My sermon from this past Sunday, “Two Parades,” is now available on our church website, at: I had been posting the audio files directly into this blog, but with our newly updated church website I can will place them there. I will continue to add a blog post to direct to the sermon. This past week was Palm Sunday and I have recently had my view of the day transformed by new Biblical scholarship about first century Jerusalem. We now know there were two parades the first day of Passover that we celebrate as Palm Sunday. One came from the west and featured Pontius Pilate. The Eastern parade was led by Jesus on a donkey. This context gives a completely different meaning to the story. I hope you enjoy the sermon.
