The Messiah Will Enter the City of Jerusalem on a Lowly Donkey

Bible Verses about Messianic Prophecy

Zech 9:9 "Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; he is just and having salvation, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Matt 21:2-3 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. "And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, `The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."

Key Points:

- Messiah will enter Jerusalem in great humility, on a donkey (the symbol of humility). The opposite of worldly power and self exaltation.

- Riding a donkey was a sign of the lowly character of Christ, since it was a despised thing to be seen riding on a donkey, put below the horse-rider.

- This was in contrast to the Grecian conqueror, Alexander the Great, in all his pomp and glory.

- Why were they to rejoice greatly and to shout? because "Behold, your King is coming to you"

- Daughter of Zion and daughter of Jerusalem both speak of Jerusalem and the people of God.

- To be "Just" was the first virtue of a good king.

- "Having salvation" speaks of being endowed with salvation (Heb. yesha), this word speaks of liberty, deliverance, prosperity, safety and salvation.

- The colt was an unbroken animal. It describes the ass of a young animal, but still running behind the she-asses made it even younger.

- "al-chamor we'al-'ayir ben-'athonoth" means literally, "on an ass, and on an ass's colt, the son of the wild-asses".

- War-chariots and horses speak of earthly (worldly) power.

- Kings, high priests, judges, and the richest people of ancient and modern times have ridden on donkeys.

- Donkeys were considered beautiful, strong, swift, surefooted and a beast of burden.

- Donkeys carry burdens of greater weight in proportion to their size than any other animal. They bear the burdens that we lay upon them.

- Donkey colts (Heb. Ayir) are also called foals, young donkeys, and colts in the Bible.

- The Talmud states: "For the ass is not a more peaceful animal than the horse, but a more vicious one" (Kliefoth), therefore the ass was more of a symbol of lowliness than of peace.
