the foal of a donkey.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 21:9 -

Then the crowds who went ahead of him and those who followed shouted:

Hosanna to the Son of David!

Blessed is he who comes in the name

of the Lord!

Hosanna in the highest heaven!

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 21:10 -

Jesus replied, “Yes, have you never read:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 21:17 -

When the disciples saw it, they were amazed and said, “How did the fig tree wither so quickly? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 21:21 -

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 21:22 -
