 13.01.00.A. THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY. Artwork by Heinrich Hoffmann. Jesus enters Jerusalem as the crowds wave palm branches. The waving of branches before a monarch was an ancient “body language” whereby people expressed their acceptance and allegiance to their king. The entry was the most significant public proclamation by Jesus that He was the Messiah, a direct fulfillment of “the day” of Psalm 118. To this announcement the religious establishment responded by planning His death.
