READ TOGETHER: (Cut out a palm branch from paper or pretend to be waving branch)
Today’s Bible story tells us that Jesus deserves our praise. When Jesus lived on earth, some people praised him by waving palm branches and shouting, “Hosanna!” Do you think you can jump up and wave your palm branch every time I say hosanna? Let’s try it. Hosanna!
The people were excited; a parade was coming! This wasn’t just any parade—the celebration was for Jesus! Jesus was riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. As Jesus passed by, the people shouted, “Hosanna!”
Many of the people knew that Jesus was a very special person. They thought he was special because he did so many good things and because they had been waiting for him to come for a long time. The people took off their coats and spread them on the ground for the donkey to walk on. Then they shouted, “Hosanna!”
Someone asked, “Who is that?” The people answered, “This is Jesus, who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna!”
