Tuesday – Passion Week – 2019

It is Tuesday of Passion Week. The opening video shows a narration of the authority of Christ being raised by the chief priests, scribes and elders of the Jews (Luke 20). The following video opens with “the widow’s mite.” The Olivet Discourse continues with the teaching of Christ on the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem that would take place in the year 70 A.D. The discussion also includes the plight of the Jews in the future Tribulation, that is written in greater detail in Matthew 24. The year of this prophecy of Christ was 30 A.D. (Ryrie Study Bible).

Passion Week/Holy Week

Passion Week is described in Matthew chapters 21-27; Mark chapters 11-15; Luke chapters 19-23; and John chapters 12-19. We are seeing the events of the last Tuesday prior to Resurrection Sunday; it is the third day of Holy Week, which began on Palm Sunday.

According to common interpretation of the Bible, Holy Tuesday is when Jesus was issued various challenges by the Pharisees and Sadducees over subjects such as marriage in heaven, paying taxes to Caesar, and the source of His authority (Matthew 21:23—23:39; Mark 11:27—12:44; Luke 20:1—21:4). By this same interpretation, this is the day that Jesus commented on the widow’s donation (Mark 12; Luke 21) and was approached by a number of God-fearing Greeks (John 12:20–36). Tuesday would also be the day that Jesus spoke His eight “woes” against the Pharisees (Matthew 23:13–36) and the evening on which He delivered the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24—25; Mark 13; Luke 21:5–36).
