The donkey is important.
The donkey carried Jesus. The one He rode on what we now call Palm Sunday.

The King Entered God’s City – But A Donkey Carried Jesus
On a donkey.
People thought He was coming to rid them of the Romans.

OK back to “a donkey carried Jesus”.
Jesus sent a few of His disciples to fetch a colt in the center of a small village.

Jesus has no trouble morning the donkey. The donkey did not buck. It did not fight. I understand this to be unusual.
It’s almost that the donkey knew of it’s destiny.
It was to lift up the King and deliver Him to His destiny.
A King riding to His ultimate moment on a lowly beast.
It was not a might horse pulling a magnificent donkey.
Jesus was humble to the end.
It had to be a donkey. There was not an alternative.
The donkey did her job.
Jesus arrived in Jerusalem in a triumphant march. People praised Him. They laid their coats in front of Him. He was to be their King.
But then He was captured and crucified. To the people a crude turn of events.
To us salvation.
A donkey carried Jesus. Why a donkey?
