MT21:10 As Jesus entered into Jerusalem the whole city was thrown into commotion, with [people] asking, “Who is this?” MT21:11 But crowds were yelling, “That is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee!”
 Thrown into commotion: The Greek is ESEISTHE from which is drawn “earthquake.” Or, KJV: moved; ASV: stirred; RHM: startled; NEB: wild with excitement; PME: a shock ran through the whole city. We can only imagine the stir that began to move as excitable tentacles throughout this famous city. This can only irritate the jealous hierarchy and cause concern among the Roman occupiers. Passover was a time when Jerusalem’s population swelled into a million pilgrims from all over the world. Crowd control was a big problem for the Roman soldiers.
 The prophet Jesus: We note the general opinion of so many people: Jesus was a prophet.
