On what we now call Palm Sunday, Jesus made his entry into the city of Jerusalem (Matt. 21:1–11; Mark 11:1–10; Luke 19:29–44; John 12:12–19), predicted his death (John 12:20–36), and visited the Temple (Matt. 21:14–17; Mark 11:11).

In the brief video above, New Testament professors Doug Moo (of Wheaton College Graduate School) and Andreas Köstenberger (of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) provide some background and context for this day.

Each day this week I’ll post a video.
