The Triumphal Entry

All 4 gospels record the triumphal entry, each giving a few different details, much like when we tell a story of something that happened, we each remember different things depending on what impacts us.
Matt and Mark record jesus telling the disciples to go get the donkey
Matthew 21:2
Matthew 21:2–3 NKJV
saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
Mark 11:
Mark 11:2–3 NKJV
and He said to them, “Go into the village opposite you; and as soon as you have entered it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has sat. Loose it and bring it. And if anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it,’ and immediately he will send it here.”
and tell us this was a fulfillment of what was spoken by Isaiah and Zechariah
Matthew 21:5 NKJV
“Tell the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ”
John 12:14–15 NKJV
Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: “Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey’s colt.”

John 12:14 NKJV
Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written:
Isaiah 62:11 NKJV
Indeed the Lord has proclaimed To the end of the world: “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Surely your salvation is coming; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.’ ”
Isaiah
Zechariah 9:9 NKJV
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.
The gospels describe how the disciples threw their clothes on the colt

So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them. And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road.

Mark 11:6–8 NKJV
And they spoke to them just as Jesus had commanded. So they let them go. Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes on it, and He sat on it. And many spread their clothes on the road, and others cut down leafy branches from the trees and spread them on the road.

Think about rocks crying out with praises to God
John 12:16 NKJV
His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him.
John 12:16
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt, a sign o peace. the crowd did not understand that He would suffer.
He was showing them that He was the coming Messiah and King, fulfilling OT prophecy
The crowd and the disciples did not fully understand this event, but they did seem to be acknowledging that Jesus was the Promised seed of David who came to bring salvation, although not as they thought.
Their actions and words show they were giving honor to Jesus, as He presented Himself as the coming King
They expected a ruling king and a restoration of the Davidic kingdom
He rode into Jerusalem as King and went to the temple. His kingdom is not of this world, it is a spiritual kingdom.
He rode into Jerusalem as King and went to the temple. His kingdom is not of this world, it is a spiritual kingdom.
He was worshipped - and He didn’t stop people.
He was worshipped - and He didn’t stop people. He rode in victorious.

And Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple. So when He had looked around at all things, as the hour was already late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.

Then He went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it,

Matthew 21:12 NKJV
Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
Matthew 21:12
Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. In a few days the crowds will not be shouting His praise, they will be shouting for Him to be crucified.
We see the messiah who the Jewish people looked for riding into the Holy City. The promises of God to His people being fulfilled.
As I think about this day one question goes through my mind
Matthew 21:10
Matthew 21:10 NKJV
And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, “Who is this?”
Who do we say Jesus is? As believers, do we allow Him to be King and Lord of our lives? We are always happy to sing praise to Him for being our saviour, but He is more.
Do we bow before Him?
Do we lay our lives before Him?
Do we honor Him?
We want to do more then remember Jesus during this season. He is Lord every day. He reigns in our lives every day.
