"See your King comesto you, gentie and riding on a donkey"
Matthew 2L 1-11


As they approachedJerusalemand cameto Bethphageonthe Mount of Olives, Jesussent
two disciples,sayingto thenq "Go to the village aheadof you, and at once you will find a
donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyonesays
anythingto you, tell him that the Lord needsthem, and he will send them right away."
This took placeto fulfil what was spokenthrough the prophet: "Say to the Daughterof
Zion, 'See,your king comesto you, gentleand riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a
donkey.'" The discipleswent and did as Jesushad instructedthem. They brought the
donkey and the colt, placedtheir cloaks on them, and Jesussat on them.
A very large crowd spreadtheir cloaks on the road, while others cut branchesfrom the
trees and spreadthem on the road. The crowds that went aheadof him and those that
followed shouted,"Hosannato the Son of David!" "Blessedis he who comesinthe name
of the Lord!" "Hosannain the highest!" When JesusenteredJerusalem,the whole ciry
was stirred and asked,"Who is this?" The crowds answered,"This is Jesus,the prophet
from Nazareth in Galilee." The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he
healedthem. But when the chief priestsand the teashersof the law saw the wonderful
