A Journey through Holy Week

Day 3: Tuesday in Jerusalem,
Mount of Olives


On Tuesday morning, Jesus and His disciples returned to Jerusalem following the stramash of the previous day. They passed the withered fig tree on their way, and Jesus again taught them about faith. At the Temple, the religious leaders, angry about what had happened in the Temple, aggressively challenged Jesus’ authority, attempting to ambush Him and create an opportunity for His arrest and certain death. But Jesus evaded their careful traps and pronounced harsh judgment on them. Later that Tuesday afternoon, Jesus left the city and went with His disciples to the Mount of Olives, which overlooks Jerusalem due east of the Temple. Here Jesus gave an elaborate prophecy about the destruction of Jerusalem and the end of the age. Scripture indicates that Tuesday was the day Judas Iscariot first negotiated with the Sanhedrin to betray Jesus.
After a tiring day of confrontation and warnings about the future, once again, Jesus and the disciples stayed the night in Bethany.
