Unarmed on History’s Battlefield

The characters from Palm Sunday and Good Friday have been present on all of history’s battlefields. • The would-be messiahs calling for violent resistance. • The oppressed populace, desperate enough to follow them. • The anxious leaders who foresee the worst and compromise their integrity to limit the destruction. • And the ones who hold the real power and are desperate to keep it. Again, and again and again, this has played out. All the characters come back again and again. All the characters, but one. On Palm Sunday, the script changed, because a new character entered the drama. See, your king comes to you Humble and riding on a donkey.
