MARCH PROMPT

Palm Sunday Is The 29th.
Crowds of people welcomed Jesus to Jerusalem, throwing their cloaks in his path and waving palm branches (John 12:19, Mark 11:1-11, Matthew 21:1-11). It was similar to the reception that Caesar, the emperor of Rome, would receive.
The colt that Jesus rode on into Jerusalem (Luke 19:28-44) fulfilled prophecy from the Old Testament about the Messiah, the savior of Israel. The Old Testament scripture he fulfilled is Zechariah 9:9: "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey."
Palm Sunday is celebrated in virtually every Christian church. It marks Jesus' final entry into Jerusalem before he was persecuted, crucified, and resurrected. The observation occurs toward the end of a 40-day period of fasting and preparation creates reflection on Christ's suffering. Palm Sunday is traditionally the beginning of Holy Week, which includes Good Friday services, as well as Easter services..
Tell the old, old story of Palm Sunday with a poem, and in a new perspective. Use poetry devices ( personification, imagery,etc.).
