Palm Sunday was yesterday. The day of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the city He loved and caused Him to weep. The people hailed Him as King, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had now seen.
And so marked the beginning of Holy Week. Or Jesus’ final week of life on this earth.
I woke up with one thought on my mind … What did Jesus do on Monday?
Seriously, what does one do after a reception and celebration such as He had been given?
Taking my coffee and my Bible, I began to search for the answer. What did Jesus do on Monday?
Interesting to me, the next story in both Matthew (chapter 21) and Luke (chapter 19) is of Jesus entering the Temple. Perhaps it was Monday or Tuesday, we don’t know for certain. With as good with details as Dr. Luke was, he does not pinpoint the day for my inquiring mind.
What we do know for certain is Jesus was not happy with the activities being held in the Temple. He turned over the tables of the money changers and those selling doves. To them He said …
“It is written, ”˜And My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a robbers’ den.” (Luke 19:46, NASB)
