Blessed Is He Who Comes in the Name of the Lord!

Triumphal Entry:  Jesus told His disciples where to obtain a colt on which He would enter Jerusalem. Mark did not refer to it, but this fulfilled Zechariah’s prophecy that He who is King of Israel will enter in just this way (Zech. 9:9). Jesus now presented Himself in Jerusalem as the promised Messiah.

As Jesus moved slowly toward the city gate, the crowds waved branches and shouted praises. They recognized Him as Messiah: “He who comes in the name of the Lord” (Mark 11:9).

When Jesus entered Jerusalem He went directly to the temple. He did not go to the Fortress Antonia or to Herod’s palace. Secular power was not the concern of the Messiah of Israel at this time.

Jesus’ choice of the temple established immediately that His first concern was religious. The focus of Jesus’ concern was the faith of Israel as a people of God, not the fate of Israel as a nation.

Jesus “looked around at everything.” After making this evaluation Jesus left. But He would return the next day.
