Next Tuesday through Thursday our rented truck will proclaim a theme in colloquial Taiwanese in keeping with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem in the days leading up to his suffering, crucifixion, and resurrection from the dead:
Daughter Zion! Shout , Daughter Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. 10 I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken. He will proclaim peace to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea. --Zech 9:9 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices shouting in heaven: “The world has now become the Kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign forever and ever.”--Rev 11:15

While I hope we have the time soon to put together a more generic recording that can help people here understand the larger biblical context for the resurrection and kingship of Jesus Christ, I nevertheless feel that getting something out is better than doing nothing this time of year—our most important holiday! May we have something else for next time that can be used multiple times throughout the year!
Happy Easter to everyone reading this blog as you earnestly await His Second Coming in glory.
