Prophesy concerning the triumphal entry penned at the hand of an ancient Near Easterner, but then what would he have known about ancient Near Easterners....... But what's amazing is that this prophetic depiction of the event was penned hundreds of years prior to the event, so the meaning of the story had been morphed into something it wasn't supposed to mean, by an ancient Near Easterner, before the event ever even took place. The mind boggles!
The donkey riding was symbolic of the Jewish royalty. Kings rode on a donkey to symbolize peace and humility, in that weren't supposed to be above the people, but one with the people. Kings of other lands rose horses, indicating superiority. The bible indicates there was never supposed to be a king. Man chose that for themselves (seems to be a pattern here), and that is also why the kings were commanded to write the law (torah) in their own hand, also symbolizing adherence to the religious law as a guideline. The law was supposed to encourage a humble attitude. Jesus riding the donkey wasn't to display humility, he was already humble. It was a sign he was the promised king arriving. The people misunderstood how his rule would be implemented. They expected a military leader.
