Palm Sunday – King of Kings

Matthew 21: 1-11 NIV
As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of
Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead
of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her.
Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say
that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” 4 This took
place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: 5 “Say to Daughter
Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on
a colt, the foal of a donkey.’” 6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had
instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their
cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their
cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread
them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that
followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who
comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked,
“Who is this?” 11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from
Nazareth in Galilee.”
