The next entry is the description of Jesus‘ entry into Jerusalem before He was arrested. As has been pointed out, this event is described in each Gospel. It was shown to be inĀ  St. Luke, St. Mark and also the Gospel of Saint Matthew). Furthermore this Hosanna praise comes from the psalms of ancient worship when a procession of thanksgiving for a victory would take place where the king and people waving palm branches would process into the temple precincts (Psalm 118: 26-29 {Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the LORD. We bless You from the LORD’s house. The LORD is God and has given us light. Join in procession with leafy branches up to the horns of the altar. You are my God, I give You thanks; my God, I offer You praise. Give thanks to the LORD, Who is good, Whose love endures forever.})
John 12: 12-13 On the next day, when the great crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, they took palm branches and went out to meet Him, and cried out:
“Hosanna! Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the LORD, [even] the King of Israel.”
