Fulfillment of Prophecy

Jesus had the disciples fetch a certain donkey and colt. Matthew told us that this was in fulfillment of prophecy and then he quoted the prophecy (Matthew 21:4, 5). The prophecy was that the King of Zion would come sitting on a donkey.
There were many such prophecies, yet, many of the people who knew the Scriptures did not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.
That always makes me wonder whether we miss things. We read our Bibles and hear countless sermons and classes. That might make us think that we know everything and that we could not possibly miss something.
Yet, why would we differ from those Jews who rejected Jesus? Many accepted who He was and many did not.
What would you think about your King riding upon a donkey?
