Mark 11:1-11 Reading the Passage

Three Valuable Lessons for Christian Living – Mark 11:1-11

11 As they approached Jerusalem, coming to Bethphage and Bethany by the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples ahead of him. (2) He gave them the instructions, Go to the village that is ahead of you. When you enter it you will immediately find a colt tied there, which no man has ever ridden. Untie him and bring him here. (3) If any one asks you, Why are you doing this? say to them, The Lord needs him; and immediately he will send him back here. (4) So they went, and found a colt tied at the door outside in the open street; and they untied him. (5) Some men who were standing there asked them, What are you doing, untying the colt? (6) Then they told them just what Jesus had said; and the men let them go.

(7) They brought the colt to Jesus, and laid their garments upon him; and Jesus sat upon him. (8) Many people spread their garments on the road; and others spread branches which they had cut from the fields. (9) They who went before them, and they who followed them, cried out, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! (10) Blessed is the kingdom that is coming, the kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest! (11) So he entered into Jerusalem and went to the temple. When he had looked around at everything, since it was already evening, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.
