Bible: Mark 11:1-11
The Triumphal Entry
11:1 Now 1 as they approached Jerusalem, 2 near Bethphage 3 and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, 4 Jesus 5 sent two of his disciples 11:2 and said to them, “Go to the village ahead of you. 6 As soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there that has never been ridden. 7 Untie it and bring it here. 11:3 If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it 8 and will send it back here soon.’” 11:4 So 9 they went and found a colt tied at a door, outside in the street, and untied it. 11:5 Some people standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” 11:6 They replied as Jesus had told them, and the bystanders 10 let them go. 11:7 Then 11 they brought the colt to Jesus, threw their cloaks 12 on it, and he sat on it. 13 11:8 Many spread their cloaks on the road and others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 11:9 Both those who went ahead and those who followed kept shouting, “Hosanna! 14 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! 15 11:10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest!” 11:11 Then 16 Jesus 17 entered Jerusalem and went to the temple. And after looking around at everything, he went out to Bethany with the twelve since it was already late.
