On the first "Palm Sunday",  Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem riding on a young donkey.  Why did He do this?  The simple answer is that He was fulfilling the prophecy found in Zechariah 9:9-10.  This is confirmed by Matthew 21:4-6.  However, the question remains, Why donkeys?  This mystery can be uncovered by:
understanding how donkeys are symbolized throughout the Bible, and 
deciphering the parable of The Fruitful Grain Of Wheat.

Why did Jesus choose Palm Sunday for His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem?  Why was it that particular day?  Could He have chosen a different day?  The answer is, No!  The Triumphal Entry HAD to occur on that exact day.  The fact that Jesus DID present himself to Israel as their Messiah on that day, is just another amazing historical event that proves that God alone is the author  of the scriptures and that Jesus is the only historical figure who could be the promised King of Israel and the world's  "Prince of Peace".

Palm Sunday, the day of Jesus' ' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem began the most important week in human history.  On this day, a  parade featuring Jesus riding on a young donkey began at Bethsaida and proceeded into Jerusalem.  Multitudes joined the processional by laying leafy branches and clothing in the pathway and shouting, "Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!  The King of Israel!".  Have you ever wondered what this "parade" was really all about?

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.
