The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on.
8 A very large crowd spread their
cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on
the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that
followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in
the name of the Lord!” Hosanna in the highest heaven!” 10 When Jesus
the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” 11 The crowds
answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Jerusalem in Nazareth Galilee.” - Matthew 21:6-11
The people's cries of 'Hosanna' came from Psalm 118:25-26 25 LORD, save us! LORD, grant us success! 26 Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you.
Hosanna means "save now." Despite what Jesus had foretold about his mission, the people were looking for a military Messiah who would overthrow the Romans and restore
When we say “Hosanna” are we looking at the temporal or the eternal (today or forever)?
Praise God! He can save us from our sin and punishment, so that we may be with Him forever and ever. Hosanna!
