DAY 2: Monday

Jesus, and his disciples, return to Jerusalem.

Jesus curses a fig tree that bore no fruit. (Matthew 21:18-22) Many believe that this symbolized that genuine faith is more than just mere religiosity.

Jesus continued to the temple where temple leaders challenged Jesus’ authority. (Matthew 21:23-28) Jesus continued teaching at the temple, debating issues of the law. Jesus’ teachings concluded Monday, day 2 of Holy Week, when the temple leaders, the Pharisees and Sadducees, realized the parables Jesus taught were about them.

41While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42“What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?” “The son of David,” they replied. 43He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says,

44“‘The Lord said to my Lord:     
“Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies
    under your feet.”’*

45If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” 46No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions. (Matthew 22:41-46, NIV)

Jesus returned to Bethany where He stayed the night at Martha and Mary’s, the sisters of Lazarus, house. Day 2 concludes.
