John 12

12The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem.
13So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!”
14And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,
15“Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your king is coming, sitting on a donkey’s colt!”
16His disciples did not understand these things at first, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him.
17The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness.
