Jesus Unhitches a Ride
Matthew's source for (or understanding of) Zechariah 9:9* is incorrect and leads him to place Jesus on two donkeys. If this isn't funny enough, Luke, who is primarily writing to a Gentile audience (versus Matthew writing to a primarily Jewish audience) gets it right (Luke 19:28). Regardless of the discrepancy, the symbolism points to Jesus as a king of peace and love.
Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem!
Lo, your king comes to you;
triumphant and victorious is he,
humble and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
