Insights from a Donkey

Matthew 21:1-11

Have you every wondered why Jesus chose to ride a donkey when he rode into Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday? Why didn’t He ride a war horse or some other more valiant animal?

Zechariah 9:9, an Old Testament of the Bible written around 520 B.C., contains a prediction that the coming King of Israel would ride into the city of Jerusalem on a donkey. But what other reasons could there be for Jesus to enter into the city in that manner?

On Palm Sunday, we turn our attention to Matthew 21:1-11, as we discover some insights from a donkey and why they are important to us even today.

We meet at 9:30 am. at 740 N. 129th Street along the West Dodge corridor in Omaha, Nebraska. If you are uncomfortable in attending in person, check out our Facebook page, SpiritOfFaithOmaha, or our YouTube channel. Come grow with us as we seek to share the joy of knowing Jesus Christ.
