Haydon’s Christ’s Entry into Jerusalem

Does anybody know the story behind that? I know that a lot of people were into including real life people into their art at the time, but why Christ? Wouldn’t that offend Christians? Did Haydon see Keats, his fellow poets and whoever else is included in the painting as visionaries? Also, who all is actually in the painting? Thanks.
