BETHLEHEM WITNESSES THE ENTRANCE OF JESUS AND HIS DISCIPLES THROUGH STEFKO BLVD & BROAD STREET ON PALM SUNDAY
On Sunday, April 1 at 11:00am, residents of Bethlehem will have the opportunity to welcome Jesus, riding on a donkey, and his disciples as they enter the city from Stefko Boulevard and Broad Street.
A group of men from El Shaddai Bethlehem Ministries, dressed in Biblical costumes, will dramatize the Biblical account of the event known as the Triumphal Entry. Members of El Shaddai Bethlehem Ministries will welcome the group by waving palm branches and shouting “Hosanna”. The crowd will follow “Jesus” and “his disciples” until they enter the Welcome Center at 529 East Broad Street. The community is being invited to participate.
According to the Biblical account, Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem with his band of renegades on the first day of the week in which he was crucified. The people received them with shouts of “Hosanna” and waving palm branches giving the Sunday before Easter the name of Palm Sunday.
Palm branches will be distributed to the crowd. Refreshments will be available at the Welcome Center for the participants.
