John 12:13 ” They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting, ‘Hosanna! blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the Lord!’ “

Within this one verse is the fulfillment of many Old Testament prophecies. Leviticus 23:40 gives directions that during the Feast of Tabernacles the people are to celebrate and rejoice before the Lord their God with palm fronds & leafy branches. In Psalm 118:25-29 it starts out with, “Oh Lord, save us!” Which is the Hebrew word from which the New Testament Greek word “Hosanna” can be traced to. And then we have Zechariah 9:9 that foretells of the coming of Zion’s King…the Messiah. “Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See your King comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” Showing that Israel no longer would rely on military strength (strong stallion war horses) but on the Prince of Peace. (a gentle donkey foal) Finally, we can see Daniel’s prophecy fulfilled as he sees The Anointed One coming. (Daniel 9:24-27)
