Sixth Sunday of Lent (C22)

Luke 19:28-40

Not Everyone Loves a Parade

After he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. [...] Then they brought it [a donkey] to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying, "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!"

Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, order your disciples to stop." He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out."

William Barclay points out that an ass was a noble beast in that day, ridden by kings in peacetime (vs. a horse during war). The symbolism points to Jesus as a king of peace and love. Additionally, we shouldn't forget that Jesus had a great deal of courage. It was a daring maneuver for Jesus to go parading into town when there was a price on his head, especially if he was asserting kingship at the same time.
