Donkey at the East Gate

December 9th, 2007

“…behold your king is coming to you…mounted on a donkey”

(Zechariah 9:9; see Matthew 21:4-5)

Introduction: The donkey at the east gate is a definite signal. Let us explore this magnificent text.

I.     Matthew 21:1-3 – A Messianic Directive

II.   Matthew 21:4-5 – A Messianic Fulfillment

III. Matthew 21:6-7 – A Messianic Feat

IV.  Matthew 21:8-10 – A Response to Messiah

Conclusion: Zechariah’s prophecy was given about the year 520 B.C. Simple math infers that this pre-dated the coming of Jesus to Jerusalem by some 550 years. What does it say? What does it say to you?
