Cwic Clips- Jesus' Royal Procession

- Palm Sunday as a Royal Procession to the Temple - 'Palms' as Lulavs? - What is the 'Triumphant Entry'?


LDS Mormon New Testament Bible


and here is I think the biggest point of

this day of Palm Sunday for us to

understand we lose for whatever reason

especially in in our in our church I

will say we lose I think a little bit

of the richness and understanding of

Jesus Christ as the king and I think we

need to develop that a little bit more

and have a clearer understanding of that

and that's what my point is in in this

episode what is happening here is we're

going to see a scenario here that is a

royal setting and Christ as the king

he's going to come in as the Royal King

and as the king of kings you know what

does that mean to these people well

remember that with Solomon for example

Solomon wrote in from the Gijon spring

which is on the east on a donkey when he

would come in to the into Jerusalem and

this would be we've talked about this

before but this would be like the

procession that you would have where the

King would be coming in and going down

this path and then coming up and then

ending up at the temple and this is

where we get the idea of make his paths

straight and prepare ye the way that's

how I see it is that the forerunner

like a John the Baptist would be someone

who is calling out repentance and saying

the king who in who the ideal King is

Jehovah Jesus Christ is going to be

coming down the procession down the path

and coming into the temple and so what

we want to do is make sure that that

road is cleared that the obstacles are

removed that we make it as straight as

possible and that we prepare the way for

that procession so that procession can

come through without any problems why do

we want that because we want the king to

be able to come through

and coming to the temple and act as the

priests King as the ruler of heaven and

of earth and so we need to make sure

that pathway is cleaned out we look

at that personally we need our own

pathways cleared out so that we could

get to our eventual end of ending up at

the Holy of Holies in the temple and

that's what would happen each year in

ancient Israel way before the time of

Christ and this is what is lost at the

time of Christ is the idea of the Kings

and the idea the temple drama that would

happen annually with the king and this

is a very important thing to understand

many of these traditions would have

continued with some of the groups

especially in the wilderness maybe in

Galilee and other places remember that

the Jews or the people of Jewish descent

in Galilee were a minority right there

scattered out and about around Palestine

here in other places Greece etc and but

some of them held on to these traditions

and these teachings that had a

more Melchizedek Priesthood Flair more

of a what we would call a First Temple

theology that would be the Temple of

Solomon because the temple that Jesus is

about to go to now is the second temple

right because the Babylonians destroyed

the first one and in another 35 40 years

the Romans are going to destroy this one

the second one but in that temple drama

in the first temple for David and

Solomon and the others that followed

what would happen is that the King

would come in in his procession just

like Jesus is about to do here and as he

came in there would be a temple drama

and that temple drama had a lot to do

with the creation and the characters in

this temple drama would include the king

and the queen and others and the king

and the Queen would have several roles

first off they would represent

themselves as the earthly

leaders of God's kingdom on earth and

that's what they mostly were right now

they acted out throughout the year but

they would also change character and

they would become God and maybe goddess

or the mother of God at least and so the

king would be acting as Jehovah so he

literally would act in this drama with

set words that we find in the Psalms and

he would act as Jehovah and he would go

in to the Holy of Holies he would sit on

the throne in the Holy of Holies the

throne of God and act as Jehovah would

well besides that he would also act as

all of the met the citizens that are

watching this happening and by the way

this would happen during the festival of

Tabernacles so this is where all of the

Jews would come in they would make their

booths or festival of booths Tabernacles

was called Sukkot or it's also when we

have the Day of Atonement which makes a

lot of sense right and there would be

certain priestly rituals that would

happen at this time and so as the

citizens were participating themselves

in this temple drama they would have a

chorus they would repeat words that they

already knew or that they had maybe

handed out to them as copies we see the

same thing by the way with King Benjamin

and his speech that is a almost

for sure that is that is a festival of

Tabernacles scenario there and the

people are all gathered to go through

this temple drama and a lot of what you

read in there you'll see is drama is

they talk all in one voice well what

does that mean why would they do that

well they've all got the words together

they already know what they're going to

say this is ritual that is happening

right but that was loss remember the


took out the temple it's gone what else

do they take out the King

there's no royalty anymore and so as

they go off and get into exile in

Babylon and then they return 70 years

later at the time there's no temple and

there is no longer going to be a king

they get close with a couple things like

the Maccabees and other rulers there

but they don't end up with a Davidic

King any longer and so they've lost this

but many sets Jewish sects have hung on

to it appears to me have hung on to

these types of traditions the older

traditions of the gospel that were wiped


and so here something begins to emerge

where Jesus is the king and what does

that mean and we were we talking about

what we were going back to Malachi and

we're going back to Zechariah and we're

going back to Zechariah and we're going

back to Isaiah who talked about the

suffering servant and the King and I to

me I think that these are references to

temple dramas they might not be they

might just be written by Isaiah but I

think that these are either references

to or actual words of a temple drama

that would have been happening in the

time of Isaiah and Hezekiah king

Hezekiah but what that would mean as the

king man is that you are yes you're the

king of the people there but it would

also mean that you are Jehovah right it

would mean that you are the king of

kings and that you are Jehovah and that

was kind of lost as we talked about the

knee whore principle in this podcast we

learned that there that the

concept of the Messiah the concept of

Christ had been tweaked in some cases

dramatically by some of these

groups and some of them a little bit is

looking at maybe a war he

or something else like that but the idea

that Jehovah himself was going to come

down may have been prevalent in some of

these groups but the idea that he was

actually God and was going to take upon

him the sins of the world that was

mostly lost at this time and so here

Christ Jesus is coming in like Solomon

did on a mule on a donkey with these

garments that are laid out the robes of

some sort and so they put the

garments on the mule on the donkey

and then Christ is on the on the

donkey and he rides in not which either

we kind of have this idea of him cut me

riding in right at the gates of the

walls of Jerusalem but that's not true

he goes through the procession and the

people are with him his followers his

believers are with him and remember that

this is the time of Passover so who's

there everybody Jerusalem is packed

absolutely packed people have come in

from all over Palestine they come in

from all over the Middle East we

eventually get the Greek Greek Jews that

come in which would be maybe everywhere

else but we've Jerusalem is absolutely

packed and many of them if not most or

all of them even from distant areas have

heard of this Jesus who is said to be by

some the Messiah that of old times that

had been prophesied of anciently and so

he rides in and where is he coming from

like Solomon he's coming from the east

and think of our temples and how they're

built right in and how significant

the East is we know that the East is

where Christ is supposed to come from in

the second coming this is where the King

comes from as he goes through his

procession to arrive

at the temple which will happened in the

second coming also so Christ is coming

in from the east in this procession and

he has these disciples and these

followers that are laying down these

garments that are being placed down of

some sort and also we hear in John that

there also have palms now we think of

the palms and we've I've heard a lot of

interpretation on that that is kind

of something about a triumph and maybe

about luxuries and of you know something

very royal and luxurious that you're

supposed to be doing here's the problem

with that that's not the best symbolism

that you'd be having at this time we

talked about the triumphant entry of

Jesus I don't know what he's triumphing

over at least right now now I

mean most of these people don't know

that he's going to be crucified and then

resurrect three days later they and they

it's a hard thing for them even to

understand even the Apostles don't quite

understand what is going on with that

and so I don't know that it is

necessarily a triumphant in the sense

that that he's triumphed already over

something rather I think it's ritual and

I think that what is happening here this

would be based a lot on a marker Barker

the biblical scholar writes about this

is she's fabulous and you know she

mentions the fact that these look more

like things that are happening from not

the feast of Passover and unleavened

bread but from the Feast of Tabernacles

where this temple drama would happen

each and every year anciently you know

600 years before the time of Christ and

I think she's right on this I mean it

seems a lot more evidence that this is

this is really what is happening and

we've talked a lot about this

competition between Moses and Jehovah or

Moses and the Messiah where the Jews at

least in Jerusalem the establishment

my column the Theological theocratic

establishment have put Moses up at the

top right they've raised Moses up at the

very top and his festival so to speak

would be or what they made it into would

be Passover right where Moses takes the

children of Israel out of out of Egypt

and then the Day of Atonement and the

Feast of Tabernacles that happens in

September October in the fall would have

been about the king would have been

about Jehovah and includes the Day of

Atonement which is all about the Messiah

and the suffering servant and so here

you have the Passover happening where

Moses reigns so to speak and yet here

comes Christ at the beginning of the

Passover week as the king the king from

the temple drama the king that the New

Testament opens up with it's showing

having Matthew show a lineage going back

all the way through the Davidic kings

the king of the end of the New Testament

that we have which is in the book of

Revelation where the king is there

sitting on his throne what vision is

John having here it's similar to if not

the same as that temple drama that they

used to have and so here comes Jesus to

be enthroned as the king or the King

Jehovah the Messiah the suffering

servant that will take on all the sins

of the world and these things that are

happening are more in line with what

happens in the Day of Atonement and the

Feast of Tabernacles then what happens

with Passover
