This work of Jesus entering Jerusalem is a mosaic done by Palastkapelle in the year 1150. As the King enters His own city, most of the crowd spread their garments on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went before him and those that followed him shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!"
This painting of The Last Supper was done by Philippe de Champaigne in the 17th Century. The Bible gives us the words of how the scenario played out, and gifted artists show us how the scene may have appeared.
