Donkey

A British Sign Language (BSL) translation of Donkey. A hoofed mammal in same family as the horse. In the lead up to Easter we read that Jesus rode on a donkey in what’s known as The Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. As he entered the city the crowd shouted: “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”. While we often see a donkey featured in the Christmas Nativity, there’s no mention in the Bible of a donkey carrying Mary to Bethlehem.
