Triumphal Entry

The scene shifts from a dinner in Bethany to a public display on the streets of Jerusalem. John recounts the triumphal entry into Jerusalem only briefly. Luke gives the longest narrative of the event, while Mathew and Mark proved the most vivid account. Their writings differ in details, but they agree on the event itself and on how the crowd responded. When the pilgrims who had come for the Passover, heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, they exploded with enthusiasm.
