Wrestling with Jesus on Palm Sunday

Bible Text: Matthew 21:1-11 & Genesis 32:22-32 |

Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey to do "battle." And, there in that city filled with Israelites and their Jewish religious leaders, Jesus would, indeed, go to war—but not with the Romans. Rather, Jesus would again be engaged in a life or death struggle with Israel itself in the greatest scene of combat the world had ever seen, or has ever seen since. Again?  Why say again? When in the past had Jesus ever wrestled with the likes of Israel?  And what does this have to do with Palm Sunday, and the coming of Easter? What does it have to do with you and me? The short answer is: Everything!Wrestling with Jesus on Palm Sunday - Sermon 4-14-19
