Palm Branches – The Triumphal Entry


“They took branches of palm trees and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” John 12:13


“Palm branches are symbolic and meaningful on Palm Sunday. Its essence can be traced back to a thriving Jewish tradition and rich Christian history. People raise palm branches from all over the world to commemorate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. Palm branches were regarded as symbols of victory and triumph at the time.” (Bible Keepers)
