It’s Monday, the day after the triumphant entry to Jerusalem. Jesus had spent the night in Bethany, and was on his way back to Jerusalem. He was hungry, so while passing fig tree he stopped and there was nothing but leaves on the tree so He cursed it saying “May you never bear fruit again!”Matthew 21:19. He then entered Jerusalem and cleansed the temple courts again, turning over tables and benches. Mark 11:15-17
Jesus continued teaching the crowds and debating with the chief priest and elders even though new knew his time was near. So as we go about our day take time to read these scriptures and reflect on who Jesus was and is, and thank God for the empty grave!
