What does Matthew 21:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Matthew 21:11

And the multitude said
Or the people, as the Vulgate Latin, and Munster's Hebrew Gospel read; the common people, that went before, and followed after him: these knew Christ better than the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Scribes and Pharisees, and rulers of the people.

This is Jesus the prophet:
that prophet Moses spoke of, in ( Deuteronomy 18:15 ) and the nation of the Jews in general expected:

of Nazareth of Galilee;
who, though he was not born there, yet being educated, and having lived much in that place, is said to be of it; and which was the common opinion of the people.
