The Triumphal Entry

12 The next day (A)the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of (B)palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, (C)“Hosanna! Blessed is (D)he who comes in the name of the Lord, even (E)the King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,

15 (F)“Fear not, daughter of Zion;
behold, your king is coming,
    sitting on a donkey's colt!”

16 (G)His disciples did not understand these things at first, but (H)when Jesus was glorified, then (I)they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him. 17 (J)The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. 18 The reason why the crowd went to meet him (K)was that they heard he had done this sign. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, (L)“You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, (M)the world has gone after him.”

Some Greeks Seek Jesus

20 Now (N)among those who went up to worship at the feast were some (O)Greeks. 21 So these came to (P)Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, and asked him, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” 22 Philip went and told (Q)Andrew; Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. 23 And Jesus answered them, (R)“The hour has come (S)for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Truly, truly, I say to you, (T)unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
