The scriptures read are Zechariah 9, Psalm 138 and Mark 16.
Zechariah 9. The first part is a nightmare to translate because of the very obscure words. But the gist is this: judgment is coming upon the cities of the Philistines.
Another oracle ("burden" in Hebrew) is that of a peaceful king riding a donkey's colt. Jesus appropriates this to make a subtle statement of his Messianic status.
Hope to the prisoners. God will rescue his people.
