All four gospels record the “Triumphant Entry” of Jesus into Jerusalem. Read each of them to get the whole picture of what happened: Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-10, Luke 19:29-44, and John 12:12-19.
Jesus is arriving in Jerusalem for the final time. Riding into the city on a donkey was the fulfillment of prophecy (Zechariah 9:9). What is the significance of this having been prophesied? What else does Zechariah say about the King on a donkey?
As He enters the city great multitudes express their praise toward Him. What are some of the reasons they are doing this? (Luke 19:37, John 12:17-18).
Who objected to the praise? (Luke 19:39) How does Jesus’ response to the Pharisees help answer the previous question?
This is one of very few events in the life of Jesus when He did something that was somewhat “kingly”. We call it the “Triumphant” Entry. Still, it was done in a very humble manner. Can you think of any other events that are similar to this? (Kingly, yet in a humble style)
Consider how we should seek the same “style” that Jesus sought: Humility as opposed to worldly glory.
