Icon of the Entry into Jerusalem

Today, the Eastern Orthodox Church celebrates Palm Sunday commemorating the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. This scene is depicted in all four Gospels and is of great importance to all Christian believers. There are several variations of Palm Sunday icons, but all of them show Christ sitting upon a donkey or colt and heading toward Jerusalem. The Twelve Apostles are following the Messiah, and the Hebrews are waiting for Him at Jerusalem’s gates.
