As the people threw their palms and coats at Jesus' feet, they were looking for a king, a leader of a revolution.

  • The people were expecting a King that was a champion warrior like the giant-slayer David
  • The people were expecting a King that would restore the physical and political prominence of the nation of Israel
  • The people were expecting a King that would be big and bad, a frightening terror to the world
  • The people were expecting a King that would oppress their oppressors
  • The people were expecting a King that would bring a life of luxury, and lavish kingdom-living - the extreme opposite of their current poverty

They realized that the remedy of their dissatisfaction and displeasure and disappointment was somehow found in this new King.
