Why then didn't you put my money in the bank? Then when I came back, my money would have earned some interest.'
"The king said to the men who were standing by, 'Take the coin away from this servant and give it to the servant who earned ten coins.'
They said, 'But sir, that servant already has ten coins.'
The king said, 'Those who have will be given more, but those who do not have anything will have everything taken away from them.
Now where are my enemies who didn't want me to be king? Bring them here and kill them before me.'"
After Jesus said this, he went on toward Jerusalem.
As Jesus came near Bethphage and Bethany, towns near the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent out two of his followers.
He said, "Go to the town you can see there. When you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here to me.
If anyone asks you why you are untying it, say that the Master needs it."
The two followers went into town and found the colt just as Jesus had told them.
As they were untying it, its owners came out and asked the followers, "Why are you untying our colt?"
