Holy Week: Tuesday

03.31.15 | Family Life Mornings

Tuesday morning, Jesus and his disciples went back to Jerusalem. They walked by the withered fig tree and had a lesson on faith. They went back to the temple. The religious leaders were not happy to see him. They questioned that he was who he said he was and tried to have him arrested. His reply is recorded in Matthew 23: “You are like whitewashed tombs—beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people's bones and all sorts of impurity. Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness...Snakes! Sons of vipers!” That afternoon, Jesus and the disciples went to the Mount of Olives where he taught about the end times, his second coming and final judgement. This was also the day Judas Iscariot negotiated with the Sanhedrin and finalized his plot to betray Jesus. Quite fitting on a day when Jesus taught so much about the future.
