Shout Praise - Music Story

Sunday, March 29, A.D. 33*

A large crowd from Jerusalem found out that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. They went out to meet him and to see Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead.

The disciples brought Jesus a donkey and a colt and he sat on them.

Daughter of Zion,
Your king comes to you,
Riding on a donkey.

The crowd spread their cloaks on the road. Others cut branches and spread them on the road.

At the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives the crowd began to praise God for the miracles they had seen. They went on before him and followed behind, shouting,

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
"Hosanna in the highest!"

Some of the Pharisees said to Jesus, "Rebuke your disciples!” He replied, "If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

Jesus entered the temple, looked around, and left. 

Monday, March 30, A.D. 33

Jesus returned to the temple. The blind and lame came to him and he healed them. Seeing this, children shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David.”

The priests and teachers were indignant and said, “Do you hear what these children are saying?" Jesus replied, “From the lips of children God has ordained praise.”

From the album “Hope Giver” this video is scrolling playback of the song.
