John 12:13-15

English Standard Version (ESV)

13 So they took branches of (A)palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, (B)“Hosanna! Blessed is (C)he who comes in the name of the Lord, even (D)the King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,

15 (E)“Fear not, daughter of Zion;
behold, your king is coming,
    sitting on a donkey’s colt!”


Main Point

  • Replacing flags – The Spirit presents a claim for all of our being
  • The best conquest – He’s come, He continues with us, He is coming back again
