Hosanna in the Highest (Matthew 21:9)
Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:“ Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”
1)What does the word Hosanna mean is this scripture?
2)Why Hosanna to the Son of David?
3)Why do we use this scripture in the Christian church to celebrate Palm Sunday? Why do we call it Palm Sunday?
Sara’s Tips for table setting: When you set your dinner table this Sunday, Palm Sunday, use Palm branches for your place-mats. A small portion of the leaf to hold your name/scripture card. Let each guest read their card and give ‘a cry of acclamation to Hosanna, Hosanna in the Highest.’
Jesus, I pray that You bless our palm branches, and protect and preserve us. We adorn our hands and tables with palms this festive day; as we, with all those throughout your family offer our “Hosanna!” May we attain Christ’s life-giving resurrection as we offer the hymns and spiritual songs through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
“With palms and branches let us raise our voices of praise, saying: Blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord, our Savior!”
