Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
righteous and having salvation is he,
humble and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9
Five days before the Passover, our Messiah rode down the Mount of Olives as He lived His life on earth, the embodiment of the Beatitudes:
- Heir of the Kingdom of Heaven
- Comforter, Teacher, and Healer
- Meek Ruler of the earth
- God Incarnate
- The only begotten Son of God
- Persecuted for righteousness’ sake
