The Rider

Is it history, or legend, that retells the scene upon the ancient road strewn with palms from Bethany to Jerusalem? Who was that rider who inspired joyous shouts that day? Was he a man of regal bearing, whom one might admire though centuries distant? Was he kingly such as fitted the kingdoms of men? Was he the best hope of only one people, now lost to them? Or, was he, is he, something else? Something more?

If legend, then let memory fail; more is needed than merely honest, admirable kings. But if history, then look ahead, for this King’s business is not yet finished, and he will see it done.
