This Week's Readings:

Matthew 21:1-11(NIV)

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

1As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples,
2saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me.
3If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”
4This took place to fulfil what was spoken through the prophet:
5“Say to Daughter Zion,
‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ” a

6The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.
7They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on.
8A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
9The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

“Hosanna b to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” c
“Hosanna d in the highest heaven!”

10When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
11The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
