The Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on John 12:12

Commentary on John 12:12-19

(Read John 12:12-19)

Christ's riding in triumph to Jerusalem is recorded by all the evangelists. Many excellent things, both in the word and providence of God, disciples do not understand at their first acquaintance with the things of God. The right understanding of spiritual nature of Christ's kingdom, prevents our misapplying the Scriptures which speak of it.
