Reception following in Fellowship hall

Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David." Mark 4:9-10

Did "...those who went ahead and those who followed..." know the remarkable truth of their cries? Or were they simply caught up in the drama of the moment, heralding the one about whom they had heard much, maintaining some dim hope that this one would be different? "Hosanna" means "save now." The words that were shouted out were familiar words to pilgrims to Jerusalem, particularly at Passover, recalling God's deliverance from slavery in Egypt and echoing the need and the hope of God's deliverance in the present moment. Did they realize what they were saying?

If they did, the cry would seem absurd when laid next to the story that follows, one that speaks of Jesus' betrayal, arrest, mockery, and cruel crucifixion. How could God save through this one who is so obviously weak, impotent, and an object of scorn. In a few days others would shout out, "He saved others; he cannot save himself. Let the Messiah, the King of Israel, come down from the cross now, so that we may see and believe." But he does not "come down", therefore apparently confirming their disbelief. Instead, he is placed in a tomb.

As we enter Holy Week we realize that the words cried out by the crowd at Jesus' entry to Jerusalem were truer than could ever have been imagined. But, in this moment, we await the hearing of the story again-and wonder at its mystery.

As we prepare to form a procession to another Table, we join our cry with those with those of all ages who cry out, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord." Are we paying attention? Do we realize what we are singing? "Save now, O blessed One!" From his blessed lips we hear the words as we are fed, "Take, this is my body," and as we drink, "This is my blood of the covenant which is poured out for many." Now, in this moment, we taste again of salvation. We know what it is to be blessed by the one whom we bless. Now, in this moment, we know ourselves to be joined by those who have come before us and will come after us-all yearning for the salvation that God gives in "the one who comes in the name of the Lord." Now, in this moment, we know something of the " reign of God in Christ Jesus."

The Prayer: O blessed Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy upon us now and grant us your salvation. Amen.
