Jesus, willing to give His life as a sacrifice for all of mankind, has always been Plan A.
Quite frequently Christianity is criticized for being male dominant and chauvinistic. If you're willing to spend even a modicum of time reading the accounts of the resurrection, you'd be hard pressed to make that argument. If it weren't for the women, we'd all still be stumbling around in the dark feeling the wall to find the light switch. Here's this Easter's message; it's a good one.
You know, Israel's kings were not to accumulate horses, a key instrument of military might. They were instructed to ride a donkey. And here is the King of kings, riding into Jerusalem the week of His laying down of His life for us, being born not by just a donkey, but the foal of a donkey. He could have the power of the universe at His command, but no. When He arrived as a babe in a manger, where I'm sure there were sheltered donkeys, the heavens opened and a choir of angels appeared giving praise to the newborn King. And now, at the end, riding in on a foal, praises for this man-God-king explode from the crowd. Praising God; a good lesson for the day.
