Matthew 21:6-7. “And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set Him thereon.”
Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words. I’ve always wondered how this event might have looked. Here’s a really good explanation, it seems to me.
What strikes me about these verses today, though is the complete obedience of both the disciples and the owner of the animals. There doesn’t seem to have been any hesitation in their cooperation.
When they had brought the donkey and the colt back to Jesus, they laid their clothing on the donkey’s back. Finally, they helped Jesus up onto the animal’s back. What happens next must have amazed the disciples. Did they understand yet what was to take place in Jerusalem?
