Matthew 21v1–11; Mark 11v1–11; Luke 19v28–38.Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. As Jesus rode into the city, the people celebrated while they shouted, “Hosanna, Hosanna!”
Dig into God’s word
Read Matthew 21v7–9. After reading, let your child know that by spreading their garments on the road in front of Jesus, the people were honoring Him as King.
Connect as a family
Your child enjoys role-play and dress-up. Allow your child to dress as royalty. Be sure to include a discussion about Jesus, our true King who loves us!
What did the people say when Jesus came riding into Jerusalem? “Hosanna!” “Blessed is the king!”
Blessings are often used in the Bible. A blessing can be a prayer of commission, a portion of Scripture, or words to encourage and guide.
Open a Bible and read Zechariah 9v9: “Rejoice! … Your king comes to you, righteous and victorious, lowly and riding on a donkey.”
