Matthew 21:1 - 21:9

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In this reading, Steve Gregg examines the account in Matthew 21:1-9, where Jesus sends two of his disciples to fetch a donkey and a colt from a village opposite Bethphage on the Mount of Olives. He then mounts the animals and enters Jerusalem while a vast crowd lays palm branches at his feet while hailing him as the "Son of David." Gregg provides valuable insights into the symbolism of the scene, which depicts Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah of Israel, fulfilling the prophecies of Zechariah 9:9 and Psalm 118:25-26. He also highlights the fact that the humble donkey on which Jesus rides is a sign of his meekness, as foretold by the prophet Isaiah.
