From the trees just outside Jerusalem. It's called Palm Sunday because this is when the Jews laid palm leaves on the road as Jesus entered Jerusalem.

Palm Sunday is a Christian feast which is the Sunday before Easter Sunday. It is also called Passion Sunday or Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion. In many Christian churches on Palm Sunday Palm leaves, often tied into the shape of crosses are given out to everyone who attends. In some places, palm leaves are unobtainable, and other trees like box, yew, willow or other native trees have to be used instead. Th Sunday was sometimes called Yew Sunday if they were using yew trees or sometimes Branch Sunday.

On the first Palm Sunday, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and people put their cloaks and Palm leaves on the ground, to make it more comfortabe to walk on, and waved them as he went past. that's my re homework. :)

What happens after Palm Sunday?

In my knowledge, i think that after palm Sunday Jesus had a last supper (last pass-over meal when Jseus changed bread+wine into body+blood of Jesus) with his disciples which is now known as Holy Thursday.

Palm Sunday marks the beginning in many denominations of Holy Week, which commemorates the last week of Jesus' life. The Passover and Jesus' arrest, were on the Thursday night, now observed as Maundy Thursday. His crucifixion, death, and entombment were on Friday (Good Friday), and the Resurrection occurred early on Sunday morning (Easter Sunday).

Did Jesus ride a donkey into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday?

Jesus is described as riding on a donkey in apparent fulfilment of a prophecy in Zechariah 9:9: "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. "

Scholars say that Zechariah chapters 9-14 were written shortly after the Return from the Babylonian Exile. The author advocated a return to the monarchy that had been disrupted by the Exile, but other parties preferred a continuation of the theocracy that had developed during the Exilic years. Chapter 9 talks exultantly about the good things that will happen now that the exiles have returned, so the passage in verse 9:9 need not have been a prophecy of Jesus, especially as he is not actually mentioned. So, is there a prophecy that was fulfilled, or did the gospel author simply know the Book of Zechariah and write a scene around it? The answer may be in the crowd that suddenly appeared out of nowhere to cheer Jesus and bring him into Jerusalem.

Mark's Gospel was the earliest of the New Testament gospels and in this Gospel, the crowd spread leafy branches on the road, just as the Jews used leafy branches in the celebration of the Sukkoth festival held at a different time of year. Mark 11:8 says (NAB), "Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields." The words used at the Sukkoth are reflected in Mark 11:9: "And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord."

John Shelby Spong (Jesus for the NonReligious) says the story came from a Jewish festival actually held at an entirely different time of year:The ]ewish eight day celebration of the harvest, known as Sukkoth, and also called the Festival of the Tabernacles or Booths, was probably the most popular holiday among the Jews in the first century. In the observance of Sukkoth, worshippers processed through Jerusalem and in the Temple, waving a bunch of leafy branches made of willow, myrtle and palm. As they waved these branches in that procession, the worshippers recited words from Psalm 118, the psalm normally used at Sukkoth. Among these words were "Save us, we beseech you, O Lord." Save us in Hebrew is hosianna or 'hosanna'. This is typically followed by "Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. (Psalm 118:25-6).

Mark took the Sukkoth traditions and transferred them from autumn to the Passover season for the procession story. Because the Passover season is too early for 'leafy branches' (except palms), John changes this to 'palm branches', creating our modern tradition of Palm Sunday. In the earliest account of Palm Sunday, leafy branches were used, but these were not really available at that time of year, leading to the conclusion that this story was was a literary fiction. But if the story of the crowd strewing leafy branches and crying "Hozanna" was a literary fiction, then so also was the story of Jesus riding the donkey.

What is the Sunday before Palm Sunday called?

In the Roman Catholic Church, before 1960 the Fifth Sunday of Lent was called Passion Sunday because the (lengthy) Passion of the Lord was read at Mass as the Gospel reading. In 1960, Blessed Pope John XXIII changed the name of Passion Sunday to "First Sunday of Passion-tide," to conform to what Pope Pius XII had done earlier--he had changed the name of Palm Sunday to "Second Sunday of Passion-tide, or Palm Sunday." That lasted until 1969 when Pope Paul VI abolished Passion-tide (as a sort of sub-season of Lent), so as of right now the Sunday before Palm Sunday is officially known as the Fifth Sunday of Lent.

But--I suspect many people would know what you are talking about when you say "Passion Sunday", particularly old-fashioned or Traditional Roman Catholics and very high-church Episcopalians
