Supplies: Donkey Digital Puppet
There are several individuals who played big roles in the story of the last week of Jesus's life. There's Peter who betrayed Jesus during the darkest moment of His life. There's Judas who betrayed Him. There is Mary Magdelene who was the first person to see the empty tomb.
One of the underrated and most overlooked characters in the story of the last week of Jesus' life is the donkey that carried Jesus through the streets of Jerusalem during the Triumphal Entry.
What was it like to carry Jesus down the streets of Jerusalem to the cheers of the crowd and then a week later to know that Jesus had died on a Roman cross?
You can read the Biblical narrative of the Triumphal Entry in Matthew 21:1–11, Mark 11:1–11, Luke 19:28–44 and John 12:12–19.
Our brand new Donny Donkey Digital Puppet would be a great way to bring this idea to life as well as a great way to support this series and this website!
