Matthew 21:1-11 | The Greatest Entrance
This was the Greatest Entrance, yet it must have looked ridiculous. A donkey is significantly smaller than a horse, and a colt isn’t even a full-size donkey. This would have been like a fully grown adult riding in on a children’s bike with stabilisers!

And yet, in deliberately fulfilling ancient prophecies, Jesus makes a clear claim to royalty. The crowd get the hint and shout out chants with regal themes.

This was the Greatest Entrance... precisely because it wasn’t. Jesus was coming as King alright, but this kingdom would turn all expectations entirely upside down.

What’s the greatest, or most comedy, entrance to an event you’ve ever witnessed?
