INTRODUCTION. When Jesus journeyed for the last time to Jerusalem to celebrate the

Passover, He was ready to complete his work on earth. For three years He had taught the people, preaching the gospel of the kingdom and demonstrating with signs and wonders that He was the Messiah, the Anointed One, promised by the Old Testament prophets. Now He would suffer, die, then triumph over death by rising the third day.

Jesus had previously resisted attempts to be made king (John 6:15), and He had cautioned his disciples to tell no man He was the Christ or tell of the vision of the transfiguration (Matt. 16:20; 17:9). Now the time had come for Jesus to manifest (declare) himself as the Messiah, the King. In fulfillment of prophecy (Zech. 9:9), He rode to the city of Jerusalem upon the colt of an ass in a lowly and meek manner. This is the only reference in the scripture that Jesus rode. As Jesus proceeded toward the city, the people shouted, Hosanna!, recognizing and acclaiming the arrival of the kingdom of David, salvation, peace and glory. But Jesus knew their hearts– within a week they would turn from him and crucify him.
