They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Blessed is the king of Israel!" John 12:13

The temple complex, a sprawling architectural wonder, crowned the western edge of Jerusalem. The temple was Herod’s greatest masterpiece, and its massive stones of white marble, gleaming with gold and gems, dazzled eyes in the morning sunlight (see Luke 21:5).

Meanwhile, thousands of Jewish pilgrims swarmed across the flanks of the Mount of Olives, congregating around a man riding down the slope and into the Eastern Gate. It was Jesus, a carpenter from Nazareth, and He was fulfilling an ancient prophecy: “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!...Behold, your king is coming to you; He is…humble, and mounted on a donkey” (Zechariah 9:9).

The temple appeared to be blazing with glory while the Messiah, by contrast, looked quite ordinary. Isaiah said of Him: “He has no stately form or majesty” (Isaiah 53:2). But in the spiritual realm, the reverse was true. David declared: “Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle” (Psalm 24:7-8).

God still cries out for the gates of your heart to be opened so that Jesus, the King of glory, may enter in.
