Jesus – A Beggar King On A Borrowed Donkey
The celebration of Passover is near. Jerusalem is full of pilgrims who want to celebrate the holiday.
Everybody who counts for something in ancient Jerusalem makes a carefully crafted entrance that emphasizes their position in society. Jesus is no exception. Only where the others got for pomp and circumstances that underline that they are the powerful in an unjust world, Jesus in his entrance embodies God’s kingdom of justice and peace that does not know poverty, exploitation and the dominance of empire.
