Holy Week: Day Two
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.
On Monday, Jesus and his disciples spend the night in Bethany, and then they decide to journey back into the city of Jerusalem. Here we see Jesus engage in two of his most unusual, startling activities. First, Jesus calls down a curse upon a fig tree for not producing its fruit. Second, as Jesus approaches the temple mount, he overturns tables, drives out money changers, and sends the pilgrims scattering away.
