Holy Week – 2023 – Day 2 – Monday – Jesus Cleanses The Temple

It is Monday Of Passion Week. The opening video shows Christ cleansing the temple in Jerusalem, and the reaction of the chief priests and scribes. This is the second cleansing of the temple by Christ (Luke 19:45-46), with the first having occurred in John 2:12-21.

Passion Week/Holy Week

Monday of Passion Week is the last Monday prior to Resurrection Sunday; it is the second day of Holy Week, after Palm Sunday. “Resurrection Sunday” is the correct term for the day that Christ resurrected from death. Easter relates to a pagan festival. See “Easter” in Unger’s Bible Dictionary. Also see, “Don’t Say Easter” in my post, 115, https://equippingblog.wordpress.com/2018/03/12/115-the-jewish-prophet-jonah-a-glimpse-of-passover/

Each day’s activities of Passion Week are identified, “by day of the week,” in the Ryrie Study Bible (Dr. Charles C. Ryrie, Deceased. See bio below). Dr. Ryrie chose the Gospel Of Luke to show, “day by day,” the things that happened during Passion Week. He also used the other three gospels for supportive information. Consider the following events.

John 12:1-11, Saturday. Christ in Bethany.
John 12:12-13, Christ enters Jerusalem. Palm Sunday.
Luke 19:28-44, Palm Sunday. The triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem.
Luke 19:45-48, Monday. Christ cleanses the temple.
Luke 20:1-21:38, Tuesday. The authority of Christ challenged; Christ responds.
Luke 22:1-6, Wednesday. Judas agrees to betray Christ.
Luke 22:7-53, Thursday. The Passover Meal, and the washing of the disciples’ feet.
Luke 22:54-23:55, Friday. The Day of Preparation. The crucifixion, death and burial of Christ.
Luke 23:56, Saturday. Sabbath rest.
Luke 24:1-53, Resurrection Sunday. Christ is resurrected.

You may contact me by emailing me on my site's email address, as follows: three.john.17.3@gmail.com The Church is the Church, and Israel is Israel. The Church did not replace Israel, and is not spiritual Israel. In the New Testament, “church” and “Israel” are mentioned as being separate entities. In the New Testament “church” is mentioned 112 times; Israel is mentioned 79 times; both are mentioned as being separate entities The Kingdom “has not yet come,” and will not come until the Jewish bloodline of Israel accepts God’s chosen king (Deuteronomy 17:15), which will take place at the end of the Tribulation when the nation of Israel faces decimation and calls on Messiah, Christ, in faith, to save them (Zechariah 12:10). Individual salvation is of the Jews (John 4:22), and comes through Christ (John 14:6). Things are discussed in this website that relate to God’s creation, from “eternity to eternity,” and all that is addressed within those parameters. Consider Isaiah 43:13, “Even from eternity I am He, And there is no one who can rescue from My hand; I act, and who can reverse it?” The Moody Study Bible adds a comment: “God is the ruler of all, and there is nothing that can stand against Him. His will is irresistible. The Bible Knowledge Commentary adds this thought: “No one can reverse what God puts into action or thwart His plans.” The articles that are found in this site may relate to anything that is found in the Bible, from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22.21, as well as anything else that may relate to the Bible..
