Jesus’ Triumphal Entry – Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44 and John 12:12-19

1 Triuphal EntryThe records of this event are found in all four Gospels: Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44 and John 12:12-19.

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

This happened just a few days before Jesus would celebrate the Passover Feast with His disciples,

 2 Trimphal Entry

as it was customary for all Jews to do, since it was commanded by God to Moses in Exodus 12.

Now as Jesus and His disciples approached Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover, they came to two villages named Bethphage and Bethany who were located by the Mount of Olives.

3 Triumphal Entry

Then Jesus sent out two of his disciples. He said to them, “Go to the village ahead of you. As soon as you get there, you will find a donkey’s colt tied up. No one has ever ridden it. Untie it and bring it here. Someone may ask you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ If so, say, ‘The Lord needs it.’ But He will send it back here soon.’ ”

4 Triumphal Entry

So they left. They found a colt out in the street. It was tied at a doorway. They untied it and some people standing there asked, “What are you doing? Why are you untying that colt?” They answered as Jesus had told them to. So the people let them go.

This took place so that what was spoken through the prophet Zechariah would come true.

“Say to the city of Zion (Jerusalem), ‘See, your king comes to you. He is gentle and riding on a donkey.  He is riding on a donkey’s colt.’ ” (Zechariah 9:9)

Did you know that the prophet Zechariah wrote that this would happen about 450 to 500 years before Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem on this triumphal entry day?

6 Triumphal Entry

The disciples went and did what Jesus told them to do. They brought the donkey to Him. They placed their coats on donkey for Jesus to sit on.

7 Triumphal Entry

A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road. Others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road and others waved them in the air.

8 Triumphal Entry

Placing cloaks and palm branches in the path of someone was an act of respect and obedience. The people were actually for a moment, recognizing Jesus as their promised Messiah.

There were many people and some went ahead of Jesus, and some followed Him. They all shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” They where shouting for salvation and recognized that Jesus was able to save.

9 Triumphal Entry

They were saying:  “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!” (Psalm 118:26). And again “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

Hosanna means “save now.” However, despite what Jesus had foretold about His mission, the people were looking for a military Messiah who would overthrow the Romans who were ruling them and their county and restore Israel’s independence. They did not understand that Jesus had come to save them from their sins; He was going to be their Passover Lamb who would shed His blood to save them.

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was excited. The people asked, “Who is this?”

10 Triumphal Entry

And the crowds answered, “This is Jesus, He is the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Then once Jesus entered Jerusalem, He went into the temple courtyard. He looked around at everything. But it was already late, so He went out to Bethany with the twelve disciples.

11 Triumphal entry

This was a very memorable day, but the very sad thing was that just a few days later; their hosanna shouts would change to shouts of “Crucify Him!” (Luke 23:20-21). Those who hailed Jesus as a King would soon reject and abandon Him, how sad.
