Palm Sunday 2017: Who IS this?

TEXT HERE

My sermon on the texts for Palm Sunday: Matthew 21:1-11 and Matthew 26:14–27:54 can be heard here:

Sources for quotes in sermon:

Douglas John  Hall, The Cross in Our Context: Jesus and the Suffering World. Augsburg, 2003.

Reflection on Zechariah and the two processions: http://dancingwiththeword.com/the-donkey-a-subversive-choice/ (hat-tip to the anonymous author of the weekly Gospel reflections from Christ and St Luke’s Church, Norfolk VA  for pointing me here), which is in turn drawing on Borg and Crossan, The Last Week: What the Gospels Really Teach about Jesus’ Final Days in Jerusalem, Harper Collins 2007; which is now surely the most quoted source in Episcopal sermons on Palm Sunday.
