John 12:12-19

The Triumphal Entry

12The next day athe large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13So they took branches of bpalm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, cHosanna! Blessed is dhe who comes in the name of the Lord, even ethe King of Israel!” 14And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,

15 fFear not, daughter of Zion;
behold, your king is coming,
sitting on a donkey’s colt!”

16 gHis disciples did not understand these things at first, but hwhen Jesus was glorified, then ithey remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him. 17 jThe crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. 18The reason why the crowd went to meet him kwas that they heard he had done this sign. 19So the Pharisees said to one another l“You see that you are gaining nothing. Look mthe world has gone after him.”
