He entered the city riding on the back of the donkey in order to fulfill a prophecy that had been written about him in Zechariah. Colt - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%2021:1-5&version=NIV 2009-08-20T17:12:36-05:00 Jesus entered Jerusalem not on a magnificent horse, but on a humble colt. This fulfilled prophesy, and also points to the humility and refusal to seek glory for himself that defined everything Jesus did.
