9 A donkey is used to carry burdens Burdens like: carrying supplies

10 A donkey is a symbol of disgrace and humiliation only the very poor will ride upon one

11 “[T]he donkey is a symbol of disgrace and humiliation in these [Near Eastern] countries. Princes and noblemen never ride a donkey; only the very poor will ride upon one. Nor would they offer such an animal to a distinguished visitor. Near Eastern officials would punish an individual for his heretical view or for some other cause reflecting on his moral character by placing him on a [donkey] and then parading him around town. In many areas of the East, this custom still prevails.”

18 Notes Donkey – is used as an animal to carry burdens for the carrying of supplies (Lamsa, Matthew 256) Donkey – quite an honor to lend a donkey to a holy man so that he may ride it (Lamsa, Matthew 256) Colt – symbolizes meekness and humility. Kings, princes, and rulers would have despised riding a donkey (Lamsa, Matthew 257) Mule – a symbol of strength (Lamsa, Matthew 257) Donkey – a symbol of disgrace and humiliation (Lamsa, Matthew 257) Donkey – most despised animal, to Jesus symbol of meekness (Lamsa, Mark & Luke 246)

19 Notes Entering a City – when Near Eastern kings and princes enter a city, people clean the streets, repair the roads, hang their tapestries from the windows or rooftops of the buildings, and spread rugs on the streets. The people are very lavish and generous on such occasions. (Lamsa, Matthew 257) Jesus Entry – A group of Galileans who had come early to the Feast greeted Jesus and his disciples when he arrived at the Mount of Olives. They had no rugs or other objects of beauty to lay under his feet. So these Galileans spread their garments on the ground as a token of welcome and loyalty to him and as a rebuke to the religious officials who were shunning [Jesus]. (Lamsa, Matthew 258).

20 Notes A delegation, composed of the governor, noblemen, and priests accompanied by a large crowd, leaves the city to greet and escort the royal guests. As a token of the city’s hearty welcome, the delegation will provide a handsome horse saddled with expensive livery embroidered with silk and gold. The Hebrews used a mule on such occasions. The mule was a symbol of strength. However, the donkey is a symbol of disgrace and humiliation in these countries. Princes and noblemen never ride a donkey; only the very poor will ride upon one. Nor would they offer such an animal to a distinguished visitor. Near Eastern officials would punish an individual for his heretical view or for some other cause reflecting on his moral character by placing him on a [donkey] and then parading him around town. In many areas of the East, this custom still prevails. (Lamsa, Matthew )
