A Triumphal entry: God’s Way - Matthew 21:1-16 Jesus enters Jerusalem riding on a donkey. Jesus’ entry reflects the roman practice of welcoming a king or general. A crowd hails Jesus as king. They spread cloaks on the ground and wave branches. They chant Psalm 118:25 which praises God for victory over the nations. Yet there are significant differences. Jesus rides not a war horse but an everyday beast of burden, a donkey. Crowds of common folks welcome him. There were no speeches of welcome from the leaders of Jerusalem. Jesus does not portray a high-class figure. He is not authorized by the dominant ruling power. He represents God’s purposes - not Rome’s.
