The Triumphal Entry

Chelsea and I begin with by talking about our crazy day (Saturday). Our water heater broke and was leaking while Chelsea was engaged in an unexpected spiritual battle. We mentioned the End Abortion Now event at the Colorado capital. We planned to go to it but the water heater issue kept us home.

Then, we talked about the events surrounding the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. We discussed the significance of the donkey, the palm branches, Lazarus, and the politics of the day. In some ways we see how the hearts of Jesus' enemies plotting His death are similar to today's culture.
