The Message of Easter : Hosanna! by Paul Baloche

“Hosanna” (Greek transcription: ??????, h?sanna) is the cry of praise or adoration shouted in recognition of the Messiahship of Jesus on his entry into Jerusalem, Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! It is used in the same way in Christian praise. It is a cry for salvation; while at the same time is a declaration of praise.(1)
As we celebrate the greatest holiday here on Earth, Easter or the Resurrection Dayof our Lord, Jesus Christ, let us be reminded of His promise. Jesus said: “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” John 11:25-26. (NIV)

The Story of Easter is found in Matthew 28:1-10. “After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” Similar accounts is found in the gospel of Mark in Mark 16:1-8.

    Hello Thor, I love your explanation of Hosanna, such a beautiful word! (I love Kirk Franklin's version of the song as well)
    You have to love and be thankful for the message of Easter, without Jesus quite a few of us would be lost.
