Another observance of The Golden Gate, is this is the very gate in which Jesus Christ came riding on a donkey during His Triumphant Entry coming from the Mount of Olives. Matthew 21:1-5 When they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage at the Mount of Olives, Jesus then sent two disciples telling them, "Go into the village ahead of you. At once you will find a donkey tied there, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to Me. If anyone says anything to you, you should say that the Lord needs them, and immediately he will send them."
This took place so that what was spoken through the prophet might be fulfilled:
Tell Daughter Zion, "Look your King is coming to you, Gentle, and mounted on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a beast of Burden."
We know through Jewish traditions and through their history they would never defile themselves by touching a corpse .
