Bible: John 12:12-18
The Triumphal Entry
12:12 The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 1 12:13 So they took branches of palm trees 2 and went out to meet him. They began to shout, 3 “Hosanna! 4 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! 5 Blessed is 6 the king of Israel!” 12:14 Jesus found a young donkey 7 and sat on it, just as it is written, 12:15 “Do not be afraid, people of Zion; 8 look, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt!” 9 12:16 (His disciples did not understand these things when they first happened, 10 but when Jesus was glorified, 11 then they remembered that these things were written about him and that these things had happened 12 to him.) 13
12:17 So the crowd who had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead were continuing to testify about it. 14 12:18 Because they had heard that Jesus 15 had performed this miraculous sign, the crowd went out to meet him.
