John 12:15 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1 ) "Fear not, daughter of Sion," (me phobou thugater Sion) "Do not fear daughter of Sion," but rather "rejoice," 0 "daughter of Jerusalem," and Zion," Zec 9:9.

2) "Behold thy king cometh," (idou ho basileus sou erchetai) "Behold your king comes of his own choice," or take notice of your king's coming to you, Joh 1:11-12; Mar 11:10-11.

3) ''Sitting on an ass's colt." (kathemenos epi polon onou) "Sitting upon a foal of an ass," a young donkey-colt, or the "foal of an ass," Zec 9:9; Mat 21:4-5. By riding in meekness, into the Holy City, on an ass, a beast of burden, rather than upon a war horse, He could readily claim to be the Messiah, the Savior, and that His kingdom was then Spiritual in nature, not of this world's order, Joh 18:36.
