When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples
and said to them, "Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it.
If anyone says to you, "Why are you doing this?' just say this, "The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.' "
They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it,
some of the bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"
They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it.
