Jesus was welcomed into Jerusalem, whether he wanted this or not, as a conquering hero and a king. He was lifted up so that even his beast of burden would not be walking on the ground, but on the palms and cloaks of the people who adored Jesus. Knowing the reality of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, it must have been difficult for Jesus to participate in this human reception, which would fall apart when he is later put to death. Still, Jesus also knows that the true procession of the king will happen at Easter when he is raised by God, bringing us with Him into glory.
