". . .the great crowd that had come to the [Passover] festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, shouting,
Blessed is the one who comes in
the name of the Lord--
the King of Israel!'"
Answering the challenge of chief priests and scribes who said to Jesus, "If you are the Messiah, tell us," Jesus said to the assembly in Jerusalem, " '. . .from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.' All of them asked, 'Are you, then, the Son of God?' He said to them, 'You say that I am.' Then they said, 'What further testimony do we need? We have heard it ourselves from his own lips!'"
