Rev Bob Hutchinson – Length 16:14

Palm Sunday – A large and enthusiastic crowd was drawn to the spectacle of Jesus arriving on a donkey; and all around the city the question was being asked, "Who is this?" (A few days later, after his betrayal and arrest, the crowd had vanished.) "Who is this?" is a question we can ask of ourselves. Do we know him – have we got to know him? What do you think – was he a good man? A charismatic teacher and preacher? A misguided revolutionary who came to a sticky end? Can we trust his claim, that he was and is the way to a full life, an eternal life in all its fullness? Paul's response, recorded in his letter to the Philippians, is well worth considering.
