John 12:12-19

12 The next day, the news that Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem swept through the city. A large crowd of Passover visitors 13 took palm branches and went down the road to meet him. They shouted,

“Praise God!
Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hail to the King of Israel!”

14 Jesus found a young donkey and rode on it, fulfilling the prophecy that said:

15 “Don’t be afraid, people of Jerusalem.
Look, your King is coming,
riding on a donkey’s colt.”

16 His disciples didn’t understand at the time that this was a fulfillment of prophecy. But after Jesus entered into his glory, they remembered what had happened and realized that these things had been written about him.

17 Many in the crowd had seen Jesus call Lazarus from the tomb, raising him from the dead, and they were telling others about it. 18 That was the reason so many went out to meet him—because they had heard about this miraculous sign. 19 Then the Pharisees said to each other, “There’s nothing we can do. Look, everyone has gone after him!”


Q: Why was it important that Jesus came riding in on a donkey? What about this entry was significant? Verse 14 says that he was fulfilling prophesy, why then did the crowd continue to misunderstand who Jesus was? Even the disciples didn’t understand, why do you think that was?

Q: How often is Jesus showing Himself to you and you miss it? Does He have to continually prove who He is to you? Does He have to remind you that He came to save you? Do you always recognize Him?
