Bible: Luke 19:28-40

The Triumphal Entry

19:28 After Jesus 1  had said this, he continued on ahead, 2  going up to Jerusalem. 3  19:29 Now 4  when he approached Bethphage 5  and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, 6  he sent two of the disciples, 19:30 telling them, 7  “Go to the village ahead of you. 8  When 9  you enter it, you will find a colt tied there that has never been ridden. 10  Untie it and bring it here. 19:31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs 11  it.’ 19:32 So those who were sent ahead found 12  it exactly 13  as he had told them. 19:33 As 14  they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, 15 Why are you untying that colt? 19:34 They replied, “The Lord needs it.” 19:35 Then 16  they brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks 17  on the colt, 18  and had Jesus get on 19  it. 19:36 As 20  he rode along, they 21  spread their cloaks on the road. 19:37 As he approached the road leading down from 22  the Mount of Olives, 23  the whole crowd of his 24  disciples began to rejoice 25  and praise 26  God with a loud voice for all the mighty works 27  they had seen: 28  19:38 Blessed is the king 29  who comes in the name of the Lord! 30  Peace in heaven and glory in the highest! 19:39 But 31  some of the Pharisees 32  in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 33  19:40 He answered, 34 I tell you, if they 35  keep silent, the very stones 36  will cry out!
