Jesus enters Jerusalem in His final days as a human being. Just think of the emotions. These same people yelling “Hosanna,” will be the very people who will be willing to accept His crucifixion in just a few days.

  • Jesus Curses the Fig Tree
    Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem
    Jesus' Authority Is Questioned
    Mark Chapter 11
    The Lessons from the Withered Fig Tree
    Jesus Cleanses the Temple
  • Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem
  • 1 And when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
    2 and said to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat; untie it and bring it.
    3 If any one says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’”
    4 And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door out in the open street; and they untied it.
    5 And those who stood there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?”
    6 And they told them what Jesus had said; and then they let them go.
    7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and threw their garments on it; and he sat upon it.
    8 And many spread their garments on the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.
  • 9 And those who went before and those who followed cried out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
    10 Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is coming! Hosanna in the highest!”
    11 And he entered Jerusalem, and went into the temple; and when he had looked round at everything, as it was
    already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
  • The Old Testament Is Fulfilled In The New Testament
    Let’s examine Passion narrative in light of the Old Testament
  • 1 Kings (971-931 B.C.)
    As you all know Jesus was often referred to as the “Son of David,” and that connection was made through his foster-father, Joseph’s lineage.
    Let’s see if there are any similarities between Solomon, and Jesus in the way in which he attained their kingship.
  • 1 Kings 1:32-34
    32 King David said, “Call to me Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada.” So they came before the king. 
    33 And the king said to them, “Take with you the servants of your lord, and cause Solomon my son to ride on my own mule, and bring him down to
    34 and let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet there anoint him king over Israel; then blow the trumpet, and say, ‘Long live King Solomon!’

  • The Book Of Zechariah
    520 B.C.
    550 Years Before Christ’s Passion
  • Zech 9:9 Restoration Under The Messiah
    9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
    Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
    Behold, your king comes to you;
    triumphant and victorious is he,
    humble and riding on an ass,
    on a colt the foal of an ass.
    (RSVCE 2nd ed.)
    The Holy Bible : Revised Standard Version Second Catholic edition (2006), with the ecclesiastical approval of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Thomas Nelson Publishing for Ignatius Press.
  • New Testament
    Gospel of Matthew 21:1-9; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28 and John 12:12-19
  • Mk. 11:7 So they brought the colt to Jesus and put their cloaks over it. And he sat on it.
    8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields.
    (Mt. 21:1-9; Mk. 11:1-10; Lk. 19:28 and Jn. 12:12-19)
  • Coincidence?
    The biological son of David, Solomon, was anointed king while riding an ass to Gihon just outside of Jerusalem.
    Zechariah tells his listeners that the Messiah, the king will come to Jerusalem riding on an ass.
    Jesus rides triumphantly into Jerusalem riding on a colt a foal of an ass.
  • Zech 9:10-11 Blood Of Your Covenant
    This phrase “blood of covenant” is only used one other time in the Old Testament.
    Exodus 24:8
    Moses sealed the covenant with Yahweh at Mt. Sinai by sprinkling blood on the people.
    Jesus uses this phrase 3 times Mt 26:28; Mk 14:24; Lk 22:20
    Zech 9:10 “his dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the Rivers to the ends of the earth. 
    11 As for you also, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will set your captives free from the waterless pit.”
    “the waterless pit” is an empty cistern used for a dungeon. 
  • Zech. 9:15 The Lord of Hosts
  • Zech 15 Blood, Wine, Bread (grain) And Altar
    In Zechariah 9:15 we have a foretelling of a new covenant,
    15 The Lord of hosts will protect them, and they shall devour and tread down the slingers.
    And they shall drink blood like wine,
    And be full like a bowl, drenched like the corners
    of the altar.
    Skipping down to 17
    Yes, how good and how fair it shall be!
    Grain shall make the young men flourish, and new wine the maidens.
    It is important to remember that wine is made from the blood of the grape.
  • Zech 10:3 Wrath And Shepherds
    3 “My anger is hot against the shepherds,
    and I will punish the leaders;
    for the LORD of hosts cares for his flock, the house of Judah,
    The Temple leaders, the “Shepherds” of the flock of Israel are feeding themselves not the sheep.
    Zech 11:7
    7 So I became the shepherd of the flock doomed to be slain for those who trafficked in the sheep.
    Skip down to 11:12
    12 Then I said to them, “If it seems right to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.” And they weighed out as my wages thirty shekels of silver.
  • Why 30 pieces of silver?
    Why 30 pieces of silver?
    Exodus 21:32
    32 If the ox gores a slave, male or female, the owner shall give to their master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.
    The “thirty shekels of silver” was the ransom given to pay for the life of a slave.
    Matthew 20:28even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
    Jesus had taken on the roll of the servant and the amount paid for a servant was, thirty shekels of silver.
  • Zech 11:13
    13 Then the Lord said to me, “Cast it into the treasury”—the lordly price at which I was paid off by them. So I took the thirty shekels of silver and cast them into the treasury in the house of the Lord.
    From the Gospel of Matthew we read, “When Judas, his betrayer, saw that he was condemned, he repented and brought back the thirty pieces of
    silver to the chief priests and the elders, 
    4 saying, “I have sinned in betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.” 5 And throwing down the pieces of silver in the temple, he departed; (Mt 27:3-5).
  • Zechariah 12:10
    10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of compassion and supplication, so that, when they look on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a first-born.
  • Zechariah 12:10
    Jn. 19:33-34
    33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs,
    34 but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, and immediately blood and water flowed out.
    Why didn’t they “break is legs?”
    Why did they pierce him?
    Passover lambs had to be without broken bones.
    Only Son = Jesus
    First-born = Israel
    Exodus 4:22-23
    22 And you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the Lord, Israel is my first-born son,
    23 and I say to you, “Let my son go that he may serve me”; if you refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay your first-born son.’”
  • Chapter 14
    1 Behold, a day of the LORD is coming, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in the midst of you.
    2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women ravished; half of the city shall go into exile, but the rest of the
    people shall not be cut off from the city.
    What happened in 70AD?
    The Temple was destroyed, people were killed but many Christians were saved when they fled to Perea.
  • Coincidences?
    All of this should be familiar to you.
    Often times we look at the events of Holy Week as Judas seeking the destruction of Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.
    We think of Jesus as a person caught up in the murderous plots of the religious leaders.
    Not so!
    Jesus was in total control and followed the plan of the Father that was revealed by the Father through the prophet Zechariah over 500 years before the birth of Jesus.
