Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

by D Berg

***


Prophecy:

The prophet Zechariah commanded the people by the Spirit of the Lord to:

"Rejoice greatly, o daughter of Zion! Shout, o daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes unto you: Righteous, and having salvation; meek, and riding a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." --Zechariah 9:9 (Prophecy given 487 B.C.)

Fulfillment:

Five days before His crucifixion, as Jesus neared Jerusalem, He told His disciples, "Go into the village ahead of you, and at once you shall find a donkey tied there, and her colt with her: Untie them, and bring them to Me. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them and brought them a donkey and the colt

...and Jesus set on them... and the multitudes that went ahead, and those that followed, shouted, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord!" --Mathew 21:2-10

Imagine! --The King of kings, God in the flesh, came riding into Jerusalem, meekly sitting on the lowly colt of a donkey, just as God's prophet, Zechariah, has predicted over 500 years earlier! --

And not only did Jesus fulfil this part of the prophecy, but the multitudes of Jerusalem who "rejoiced greatly" and "shouted" praises to Him as He entered the city were further proof that indeed , Jesus of Nazareth was "the King" of whom Zechariah had prophesied!
