The Prophecy: The Messiah will enter Jerusalem riding on a donkey

The Prophecy: The Messiah will enter Jerusalem riding on a donkey 

“Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion! Shout, daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes to you!
He is righteous, and having salvation; lowly, and riding on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Zechariah 9:9 

The messianic nature of this prophecy is widely recognized in rabbinic writings. Rabbi David Altschuler writes: “‘Behold, your King’ — this is the King Messiah.” 


The Fulfillment of the Prophecy: Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey
 

“The disciples went, and did just as Jesus commanded them, and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their clothes on them; and he sat on them. A very great multitude spread their clothes on the road. Others cut branches from the trees, and spread them on the road. The multitudes who went in front of him, and those who followed, kept shouting, ‘Hoshia’na to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hoshia’na in the highest!’ When he had come into Jerusalem, all the city was stirred up, saying, ‘Who is this?’ The multitudes said, ‘This is the prophet, Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.'” Matthew 21:6-11
