Jesus rode on a donkey

An EasyEnglish Story Unit (AEE) from John’s Good News

Joyce Ferrie



A crowd of people heard that Jesus was coming to the city.

They took the big leaves down from the palm trees.

The people went to meet Jesus.



The people shouted “Praise God.

God bless him who comes in the name of the Lord.”





Jesus found a donkey and he rode on it.

A long time before this happened the old part of the Bible had said

‘Your King comes riding on a donkey.’

Now it happened just as the Bible had said it would.

The people saw Jesus riding into the city on a donkey.



John 12:12-15    No. 14.
