On Palm Sunday, Jesus made His Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem with throngs of people cheering and praising His coming.
On Monday, Jesus publicly declared the Temple to be a den of thieves rather than a house of prayer.
The religious leaders in Jerusalem understood that they were quickly losing their place.
How would they respond? What sort of strategy would they come up with to regain their footing and drive a wedge between Jesus and His growing crowd of followers?
Sunday and Monday
It’s interesting that just as we’re entering into the final week of Jesus’ life in our study of the Gospel of John — we’ve also entered our yearly celebration of Holy Week.
Yesterday, was of course Palm Sunday or the day we also call Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. And so today, obviously, is Monday.
Yesterday, the crowds cheered His presence during this the most celebrated and holiest of weeks in Israel.
And yet, yesterday evening, Jesus wept over Jerusalem and Israel’s rejection of Him and the holy city’s coming destruction because of it.
