Matthew 21:1-11

The Triumphal Entry

a Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to b the Mount of Olives, then Jesus c sent two disciples, saying to them, Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place d to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,

e Say to the daughter of Zion,
Behold, your king is coming to you,
f humble, and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt,
Or donkey, and on a colt,
the foal of a beast of burden.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd h spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting i Hosanna to j the Son of David! k Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna l in the highest!” 10 And m when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” 11 And the crowds said, “This is n the prophet Jesus o from Nazareth of Galilee.”

Mark 11:1-10

The Triumphal Entry

p Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to q Bethphage and Bethany, at r the Mount of Olives, Jesus
Greek he
sent t two of his disciples
and said to them, Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied u on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’” And they went away and found a colt tied at a door outside in the street, and they untied it. And some of those standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” And they told them what Jesus had said, and they let them go. And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it. And many v spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. And those who went before and those who followed were shouting w Hosanna! x Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! 10 Blessed is y the coming z kingdom of aa our father ab David! ac Hosanna ad in the highest!”

Luke 19:28-40

The Triumphal Entry

28 And when he had said these things ae he went on ahead af going up to Jerusalem. 29  ag When he drew near to Bethphage and ah Bethany, at ai the mount that is called Olivet, he sent aj two of the disciples, 30 saying, Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied ak on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it al just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they am spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing nearalready on the way down the Mount of Olivesan the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice ao for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying ap Blessed is aq the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and ar glory in the highest!” 39  as And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent at the very stones would cry out.”
