John 12: 12-13 ” The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast heard that Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting, ‘Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!’ ” ‘

Instead of being astride a fiery  stallion, coming to make war…He came to Jerusalem riding a donkey, a sign of desiring peace.  Instead of being surrounded by  multitudes of troops, He came with a rag-tag group of twelve men, who didn’t have a clue what was happening.  Yes, Jesus could have rode into Jerusalem with all the pomp and glory befitting the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, but He didn’t.  However, He did ride in victorious, as signified by the symbol of the palm branches… victory was already His.
