Jesus rides on a donkey



Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.

He asked his friends to go into a village.

He told them they would find a donkey there.

His friends found the donkey.

It was tied up outside a house.

They untied the donkey.

‘What are you doing?’ someone asked.

‘Jesus needs the donkey’, said his friends.

‘We will bring it back soon’.


They took the donkey to Jesus.

He rode the donkey to Jerusalem.

Lots of people saw Jesus riding the donkey.

They walked beside him.

They cut down big leaves from the trees.

They put them on the road.







The people shouted ‘Praise God’.


‘Praise God for our King’.

Jesus rode into Jerusalem and all the people followed him.

Mark 11.1-11






Praise God for sending Jesus.

Thank you Jesus that you came.
