John 12:12–19

Jesus Enters Jerusalem

13 took the branches of the palm trees and went out to meet Him, and began to shout, “aHosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, even the bKing of Israel.”

15 aFear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.”
