A King Riding On A Donkey?

John 12:12-19 — Palm Sunday. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee… riding upon an ass.” (Zechariah 9:9)

We’ve all seen paintings of famous generals and kings riding magnificent horses, but why does this King choose a donkey? What does it tell us about Him and why does it matter?
