Jesus and the Donkey: A Story of Many Interpretations

Jesus and donkey entering Jerusalem, palm Sunday

“The Metamorphosis of Jesus Christ from a humble servant of the abject poor to a symbol that stands for gun rights, prosperity theology, anti-science, limited government (that neglects the destitute) and fierce nationalism is truly the strangest transformation in human history.” -Riann Wilson

PALM SUNDAY: Christians celebrate a humble street person who has groupies this Holy Week. The Palm Branches, the donkey, the crowds . . . and this is the one who, as Riann Wilson’s quote states, was that “humble servant of the abject poor.” So what have we made this person? And what was he at the time of these events as he enters Jerusalem? Snowdance will guide us in exploring how we respond to these questions this Sunday morning.
