500 Years

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

Zech 9:9 (538 BC)

Matthew 21:2-7-saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away." This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: "Say to Daughter Zion, 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'"t The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on.
500 years before Jesus came into Jerusalem on a donkey, Zechariah was prophesying about it!!!  God's plan was in place from the beginning.  So cool!

Here are some others.
  • The Son of Man. Jesus is Joshua the High Priest and Zerubabbel the King at the resurrection. (Zechariah 3-4)
  • The Branch. Jesus was the Branch who was cut off at the crucifixion but sprang to life at the resurrection. (Zechariah 6: 12-13)
  • King on a Donkey. Jesus rode into the east gate of Jerusalem on a donkey during His final week. (Zechariah 9: 9)
  • Valued at 30 Shekels. He was betrayed for 30 shekels of silver. (Zechariah 11: 12-13)
  • The Pierced One. He was pierced by a sword. (Zechariah 12: 10)
  • Two Streams. Blood and water flowed from His side. (Zechariah 13: 1)
  • A Sword Strikes the Shepherd and Scatters the Sheep. The disciples scattered at His arrest. (Zechariah 13: 7)
  • Wounded by Friends. He was killed by Israel. (Zechariah 13: 6)
