According to Matthew, Jesus entered Jerusalem riding
According to the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a colt and a donkey. This event is known as the Triumphal Entry, which is celebrated by Christians on Palm Sunday, the week before Easter. The image of Jesus riding on a colt and a donkey was seen as a fulfillment of the prophecy in Zechariah 9:9, which states, "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." This event is considered significant as it symbolizes Jesus' entry into Jerusalem as a king, and it also sets the stage for his crucifixion and resurrection.
