Luke 19:41-42 ” As He approached Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you had only known on this day what would bring you peace – but now it is hidden from your eyes.’ “

In the Bible it’s called the Triumphal Entry…today, we call it Palm Sunday, but it was anything like a great king making a grand entrance into the city of Jerusalem.  The writer of this gospel, Luke, was a physician, and as one who by profession had sympathy towards the whole of humanity,  he wrote in a style that showcased the compassion and kindness of Jesus.  For Luke writes in Chapter 13: 34-35 of Jesus lamenting over the stubbornness and unwillingness of the Jewish people to acknowledge Him as their long-awaited Messiah.  So as Jesus came into view of the city that Palm Sunday, He started to weep, grieving deeply over the self-imposed destruction of His people. (Isaiah 22:4)
