On October 13, 2012 Los Angeles experienced a once in a lifetime opportunity. It was the space shuttle Endeavor transported southbound on Crenshaw Blvd and then eastbound on Martin Luther King Blvd. The crowds were enormous and people came from miles around. Many slept in their cars overnight to experience this sight. The people were full of excitement and enthusiasm when they got their glimpse of the shuttle as it slowly edged its way to its destination, the California Science Center.
One could imagine a similar sight when Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey.—Jim L. Wilson and Kelvin Akins
Matthew 21:4-11 (HCSB) (4) This took place so that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled: (5) Tell Daughter Zion, “Look, your King is coming to you, gentle, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.” (6) The disciples went and did just as Jesus directed them. (7) They brought the donkey and the colt; then they laid their robes on them, and He sat on them. (8) A very large crowd spread their robes on the road; others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them on the road. (9) Then the crowds who went ahead of Him and those who followed kept shouting: Hosanna to the Son of David! He who comes in the name of the Lord is the blessed One! Hosanna in the highest heaven! (10) When He entered Jerusalem, the whole city was shaken, saying, “Who is this?” (11) And the crowds kept saying, “This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth in Galilee!”
