Tuesday, Jerusalem, The Temple and Environs

It is Passion Week. Tuesday finds Jesus continuing to teach and heal.

By Whose Authority?

When he had returned to the Temple and was teaching, the chief priests and other Jewish leaders came up to him and demanded to know by whose authority he had thrown out the merchants the day before. “I’ll tell you if you answer one question first,” Jesus replied. “Was John the Baptist sent from God or not?” They talked it over among themselves. “If we say, ‘From God,’” they said, “then he will ask why we didn’t believe what John said. And if we deny that God sent him, we’ll be mobbed, for the crowd all think he was a prophet.” So they finally replied, “We don’t know!” And Jesus said, “Then I won’t answer your question either.” Matthew 21:23-27 TLB

Of End Times, Deception, and Fig Trees

Later that day, Scripture records a conversation between Jesus and the Disciples (Matthew 24). A lengthy discussion ensues regarding end times, persecution, the great tribulation, and fig trees. Jesus speaks directly as the Messiah. He warns of false prophets and phony messiahs. Jesus’s final word on His return: “No one but the Father knows the day and the hour. Let every generation live as though I were returning tomorrow.”
