The Sunday of the Passion
March 20, 2016 The Triumphal Entry: Mark 11:1–10
Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of
Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the village in front of
you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever
sat. Untie it and bring it. If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord
has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’” And they went away and found a
colt tied at a door outside in the street, and they untied it. And some of those standing
there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” And they told them what
Jesus had said, and they let them go. And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their
cloaks on it, and he sat on it. And many spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread
leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. And those who went before and those
who followed were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the
Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!”
Processional Hymn: “All Glory, Laud, and Honor” LSB 442 ref All glory, laud, and honor
To You, Redeemer, King,
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring.
1 You are the King of Israel
And David’s royal Son,
Now in the Lord’s name coming,
Our King and Blessèd One. Refrain
2 The company of angels
Is praising You on high,
And we with all creation
In chorus make reply. Refrain
3 The multitude of pilgrims
With palms before You went;
Our praise and prayer and anthems
Before You we present. Refrain
4 To You before Your passion
They sang their hymns of praise;
To You, now high exalted,
Our melody we raise. Refrain
5 As You received their praises,
Accept the prayers we bring,
O Source of ev’ry blessing,
Our good and gracious King. Refrain Public domain
Invocation P In the name of the Father and of the T Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Exhortation P Beloved in the Lord! Let us draw near with a true heart and confess our sins unto
God our Father, beseeching Him in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to grant us
P Our help is in the name of the Lord,
C who made heaven and earth. P I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord,
C and You forgave the iniquity of my sin.
Silence for reflection on God's Word and for self-examination.
Confession of Sins P O almighty God, merciful Father,
C I, a poor, miserable sinner, confess unto You all my sins and iniquities with
which I have ever offended You and justly deserved Your temporal and eternal
punishment. But I am heartily sorry for them and sincerely repent of them, and
I pray You of Your boundless mercy and for the sake of the holy, innocent,
bitter sufferings and death of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, to be gracious and
merciful to me, a poor, sinful being.
Forgiveness of our Sin (Absolution) P Upon this your confession, I, by virtue of my office, as a called and ordained servant
of the Word, announce the grace of God unto all of you, and in the stead and by the
command of my Lord Jesus Christ I forgive you all your sins in the name of the
Father and of the T Son and of the Holy Spirit.
[10:30] Sunday School Children's Anthem: “Crown Him With Many Crowns”
Salutation and Collect of the Day P The Lord be with you.
C And with thy spirit.
P Let us pray.
Almighty and everlasting God, You sent Your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, to take
upon Himself our flesh and to suffer death upon the cross. Mercifully grant that we
may follow the example of His great humility and patience and be made partakers of
His resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with
You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Old Testament Reading: Deuteronomy 32:36–39 The LORD will vindicate his people
and have compassion on his servants,
when he sees that their power is gone
and there is none remaining, bond or free.
Then he will say, “Where are their gods,
the rock in which they took refuge,
who ate the fat of their sacrifices
and drank the wine of their drink offering?
Let them rise up and help you;
let them be your protection!”
“See now that I, even I, am he,
and there is no god beside me;
I kill and I make alive;
I wound and I heal;
and there is none that can deliver out of my hand.”
A This is the Word of the Lord.
C Thanks be to God.
Second Reading: Philippians 2:5–11 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was
in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made
himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And
being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of
death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him
the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
A This is the Word of the Lord.
C Thanks be to God.

Holy Gospel: Matthew 21:10–17 P The Holy Gospel according to St. Matthew, the twenty-first chapter.
C Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?”
And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”
And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and
he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons.
He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you
make it a den of robbers.”
And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. But when
the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children
crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant, and they
said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have
you never read,
“‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies
you have prepared praise’?”
And leaving them, he went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there.
P This is the Gospel of the Lord.
C Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
Confession of Faith (Creed of Nicea) C I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all
things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of His
Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God,
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things
were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and
was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and
was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried. And
the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures and ascended into
heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He will come again with
glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from
the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped
and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in one holy Christian
and apostolic Church, I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and
I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life T of the world to come.
Hymn of the Day: “Prepare the Royal Highway” LSB 343 1 Prepare the royal highway;
