Holy Week: Day Three


Crossway has put together a great series of short videos that I am posting each day this week to help us reflect on the last week of the life of Jesus. If you are interested in exploring this further, this series of videos is based on a helpful book you can get here.

All of this combined to put Jesus on an inevitable collision course with the Jewish authorities. He spends all of Tuesday interacting with them, meeting their objections and raising questions of his own. But what exactly made the Jewish leaders so mad? Why was Jesus viewed as such a threat?
