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.
