Hey person, I’ve been listening to all these Bible stories that promise me treats and I’m still waiting for my treats.
What do you mean, there’s no treats in this story?
Then what’s the use of listening.
There’s an animal in the story?
Okay, I guess I’ll listen.
Jesus and His disciples were approaching Jerusalem and came to Bethpage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives. Jesus sent two of His disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden.
I could chase after that colt for them.
You know, like I tried to chase after those horses we saw on my trails?
Just don’t keep holding onto my leash this time.
I am listening.
Jesus said, “Untie the colt and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ tell him, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”
Is Jesus going to chase after that colt?
The disciples went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, some people standing there asked, “What are you doing, untying that colt?”
Isn’t that inhumane treatment of animals to keep them tied up?
Those disciples were just being nice to that colt.
Yes, I’m listening.
The disciples answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
Jesus must have been a popular guy.
When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, He sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
I don’t get it. Now the colt and the road must be really warm, but if the people took off their cloaks aren’t they shivering?
Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!”
“Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”
Hosanna in the highest!”
I guess Jesus was a popular guy. Those people must have been so busy shouting that they didn’t notice they were cold.
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
“I tell you,” Jesus replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
I think I heard one of those stones crying out when we were on my trails.
It was not a bird.

Collies, us dogs will never figure our people out. I think riding into town in a Lincoln would be great.

I met a Colt before I was not impressed. I think I might be impressed with this Jesus guy because my mom says He loves us much..

Fredrieka, Jesus loves us and I’ve also heard that He gives special treats to dogs.

I’m glad to hear that the colt was untied and had let Jesus ride on his back! He/she must have been so honored! 🙂

Kevin, I bet that was pretty exciting for that colt. I wonder if Jesus gave it extra treats.
