Jesus came to a small village near Jerusalem. He told two of His
"Go into that town, and near the entrance you will find a colt
that has never been ridden. Untie the colt and bring it back. If
anyone asks you what you are doing, tell them that the Lord needs
the colt and that He will return it later."
The two did as Jesus said, and soon returned with the colt. Then
the disciples laid their garments on the colt like a saddle, and
Jesus sat on the colt and began to ride.
As Jesus entered Jerusalem, people lay their coats and garments
across the road before Him. Others spread palm branches they had
cut from the nearby trees. A joyful parade followed Jesus as He
rode the young colt through Jerusalem. The celebration continued
as the crowd waved and shouted praises.
"Hosanna! Hosanna!" they cried. "Blessed is He who comes in the
name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!"
