Kids Korner: Hosanna, loud hosannas (Palm Sunday, April 2nd)

Read Matthew 21:1-11 with your family.

Jesus entry into Jerusalem was a celebration and is one of the few places in the Bible where children are active in supporting Jesus.

The word Hosanna means “please help us”. The children in Jerusalem knew the Romans guards were not nice people, and they believed Jesus would get rid of them so that everyone could live in safety and peace. It didn’t work out the way the children and adults around them thought it would, but we can still celebrate Palm Sunday for being a celebration of hope and promise.

Wave branches high, parade around your home and outside, jump on and off the furniture (if you are allowed) and yell “Hosanna”.
