Jesus rides on a donkey

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

Joyce Ferrie



Jesus said to two of his friends,

“Go into the next village.

You will see a donkey.

Please bring it to me.

If anyone says anything, tell him,

‘The master needs it’, then it will be all right.”


Jesus’ friends took the donkey to him.

He rode on the donkey.

A lot of people watched him.

A lot of them walked in front of Jesus.

They threw their coats on the road.

Some people cut the big leaves from the palm trees.



They put some of them on the road.

They waved palm leaves.



The people shouted,

“God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord.”

“Praise God.”



Jesus rode into the city.

Some people asked, “Who is this man?”

“It is Jesus”, the crowd replied.



Matthew 21:1-11.
