The Triumphal Entry: A Living Parable - Part I 02.21.2020 Larry Shepard On April 6, AD 32, Jesus, with much fanfare, rode into Jerusalem on a young donkey. This is the only time in the gospels that Jesus does not travel (on land) by foot. Why? What is happening here? What does it mean? This is a living parable. Instead of telling a story, Jesus delivers a message "live" and in living color. Hidden in this humble donkey ride into Jerusalem are truths about who Jesus is, His purpose and the fulfillment of numerous prophecies, including a staggering 500year old prediction of when Israel's Messiah (Christ) would present Himself as King! There are blessings waiting for us as we discover these hidden treasures. These blessings are what I refer to as "The Power in the Parable"! Let's go.
