It is often stated that there was significance in the fact that Jesus would ride on a donkey when He went into Jerusalem. In particular, that such a humble creature would be chosen by such an extraordinary person.
I like to think that, as in everything else, Jesus knew exactly what he was doing when he made the decision. Jesus was all about peacefulness and modesty. To him, walking quietly in the world was the only way to travel and there is a serenity about the gait of a donkey, and a determination.
Yes, indeed, Jesus knew exactly what he was doing.
