Heroes & Expectations: Apollo 11 and Jesus’s Palm Sunday

Join Big Steve on a thrilling, yet educational mishap as he sneaks into an Apollo 11 spacesuit, sparking a lesson-filled adventure for both him and Noah. 🚀 After a gentle reprimand from a security guard, Big Steve uses the moment to dive into the story of Apollo 11’s historic moon landing, the astronauts’ return as heroes, and how quickly they were forgotten by the public. Drawing a powerful parallel, Big Steve then shares the story of Jesus on Palm Sunday. As Jesus entered Jerusalem, he was celebrated with joy by crowds waving palm branches and shouting “Hosanna!” Only for the same voices to cry “Crucify him!” mere days later. This stark contrast highlights the dangers of earthly expectations and the transient nature of human praise. Through this episode, viewers learn the importance of understanding true value and the eternal significance of Jesus’s teachings, beyond the changing tides of public opinion and expectation. It’s a reminder that while humans may falter in their recognition, the teachings and love of Jesus remain constant and unfailing.

The Bible

Palm Sunday:

John 12:12-19
