VIII. MAIN BODY:
Mass homage happened while JESUS is on the road riding a young colt.
But unlike any earthly king, JESUS came in by humility. Kings will usually use a donkey, mule or a horse but not a young colt. JESUS is no earthly king but both Heavenly and earthly king and even under-the-earth king. (Philippians 2:10-11)
2 Samuel 16:2 (Amplified Bible)
16:2 The king said to Ziba, What do you mean by these? Ziba said, The donkeys are for the king’s household to ride on, the bread and summer fruit for the young men to eat, and the wine is for those to drink who become faint in the wilderness.
2 Samuel 18:9 (Amplified Bible)
18:9 Then Absalom [unavoidably] met the servants of David. Absalom rode on a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and Absalom’s head caught fast [in a fork] of the oak; and the mule under him ran away, leaving him hanging between the heavens and the earth.
1 Kings 1:33 (Amplified Bible)
1:33 The king told them, Take the servants of your lord and cause Solomon my son to ride on my own mule and bring him down to Gihon [in the Kidron Valley].
Philippians 2:10-11 (Amplified Bible)
2:10 That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

A. They spread their garments on the road
"And many [of the people] spread their garments on the road,"
Leviticus 23:40 (Amplified Bible)
23:40 And on the first day you shall take the fruit of pleasing trees [and make booths of them], branches of palm trees, and boughs of thick (leafy) trees, and willows of the brook; and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days.
