0033 - A Donkey Colt and An Authentic Antique Wheel
by J. R. Beatty
Was this authentic antique wheel from a 33 A.D. Roman cavalry war chariot? Or was it from a 1933 A.D.
farm tractor? Only your local, professional Archaeologist knows for sure!
Then I saw the "cross-shaped" darker fur along the donkey's back and across its front shoulders. I remembered that the Holy Bible says Jesus Christ (THE 33 year old Jewish Son-of-God, Son-of-Man) once rode into Jerusalem on the way to His own Roman Cross Crucifixion.
Jesus rode on the back of a young, unridden, donkey colt similar to the one in my photo - moving slowly through the "Hallelujah" (Praise The Lord!) and "Hosanna" (Save Us We Pray!) shouting, multi-national Jewish celebrants. They were in Jerusalem for the Passover Feast. The crowds spread their cloaks and the waved green palm tree branches on the ground for the donkey colt to walk over. They did this to honor and greet Him - their long-desired and long-expected Messiah!
