Triumphant Entry

Found in Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44 and John 12:12-19

When Jesus was near Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples.

Jesus: Go into the village you shall find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them, and bring them to me. And if any man say anything to you, you shall say, The Lord has need of them; and straightway he will send them.  
All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. (Zechariah 9:9)

They who were sent went their way, and found even as he had said to them. 

And as they were loosing the colt;

The owners: Why do you loose the colt? 

 Two disciples: The Lord has need of him.  

And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
A very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.  

And when Jesus was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen. 

The people: Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed be the King that cometh in the name ofthe Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. Hosanna in the highest.

Pharisees (from among the multitude): Master, rebuke your disciples.

Jesus: If these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.

And when Jesus came near, he beheld the city, and wept over it. 

Jesus: If you had known, even you, at least in this day, the things which belong to your peace! but now they are hid from your eyes.  The days shall come upon you, that your enemies shall cast a trench about you, and compass round you, and keep you in on every side. And they shall lay you even with the ground, and your children within you; and they shall not leave in you one stone upon another; because you knew not the time of your visitation.  

His disciples did not understood these things at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, they remembered that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things to him.  

The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

Pharisees (among themselves): Perceive how you prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.  

When he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved.

The people in the city: Who is this?  

The multitude: This is Jesus the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.
