[Mark 11]

     {Luk 19:1-28; Jericho.}{Joh 11:55-12:1, 9-11 Bethany March 31- April 1, 30 AD.}

     {The week of Jesus' crucifixion. Mar 11:1-11 & Mat 21:1-12, 14-17 & Luk 19:29-44 & Joh 12:12-19 Bethany to Jerusalem and back Sun. April 2, 30 AD.}

     11:1 And when they draw near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, toward the Mountain of Olives, he sends two of his disciples, 11:2 and says to them, GoĎ into the village which is in front of youĎ and immediately when* youĎ travel into it, youĎ will find a colt that has been tied upon which no man{Greek: no one of men}has sat; when* youĎ have loosed it, leadĎit here.11:3And if anyone says to youĎ, Why are youĎ doing this? SayĎ that the Lord has need of him, and immediately he will send it here.11:4 Now they went away and found a colt that has been tied at the door outside in the road, and they loose him.

     11:5 And some of those who are standing there were saying to them, What are youĎ doing, loosening the colt?

     11:6 And they said to them just-as Jesus had commanded and they let them leave. 11:7 And they led the colt to Jesus and cast their garments upon it, and he sat upon it. 11:8 But many spread their garments upon the road, and others were cutting down foliage from the trees and were spreadingthem in the road. 11:9 And those who precede him and those who followed him, were crying out, saying, Hosanna; he who comes in the name of the Lord has been blessed! 11:10 The kingdom which is coming in the name of the Lord of our father David has been blessed! Hosanna in the highest!

     11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem and into the temple, and having looked around on all things, already being the evening hour, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

     {Mar 11:12-18 & Mat 21:18, 19, 12, 13 & Luk 19:45-48 Road from Bethany to Jerusalem Mon.}

     11:12 And on the next-day, having come out from Bethany, he hungered. 11:13 And seeing a fig tree from afar having leaves, he came to see if he will then find anything in it, and when* he came upon it, he found nothing except leaves; for* it was not the time of figs. 11:14 And Jesus answered and said to it, No one may eat fruit from youС no longer, forever. And his disciples heard it.

     11:15 And they come to Jerusalem and Jesus entered into the temple and began to cast out those who are selling and buying in the temple, and turned over the tables of the brokers and the chairs of those who are selling the doves; 11:16 and he was not allowing, that* anyone should carry goods through the temple. 11:17 And he was teaching them, saying to them, Has it not been written, 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations? But youĎ have made* it a den of robbers.'{Isa 56:7 and Jer 7:11}11:18 And the scribes and the high-priests heard it and were seeking how they might destroy him, but they feared him, because all the crowd was being astounded at his teaching.

     {Mar 11:19-26 & Mat 21:20-22 & Luk 21:37-38 Road from Bethany to Jerusalem Tues.}

     11:19 And when it became evening, he traveled outside the city. 11:20 And in the morning, whiletraveling by, they saw the fig tree that has been dried up from the roots. 11:21 And Peter, having remembered, says to him, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which you cursed, it has been dried up.

     11:22 And Jesus answered and says to them, HaveĎ faith of God.11:23For* assuredly I am saying to youĎ, Whoever says to this mountain, Be lifted up and be cast into the sea, and should not doubt in his heart, but should believe that what he says happens; whatever he says will be to him.11:24Because of this, I am saying to youĎ, All things, as many things as youĎ may ask for whenpraying, believeĎ that youĎ receive them and youĎ will have them.11:25And whenever youĎ stand praying, if youĎ have anything against anyone, forgiveĎthem; in order that yourĎ Father the one in the heavens may also forgive youĎ yourĎ trespasses.11:26But if youĎ do not forgive, neither will yourĎ Father, the one in the heavens, be forgiving yourĎ trespasses.

     {Mar 11:27-33 & Mat 21:23-27 & Luk 20:1-8 Courtyard of the Temple, Tues.}

     11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem, and while* he is walking in the temple, the high-priests and the scribes and the elders come to him; 11:28 and they say to him, By what authority are you doing these things? And who gave you this authority, in order that you should do these things?

     11:29 But Jesus answered and said to them, I will also ask youĎ one question, and answerĎ me, and I will tell youĎ by what authority I am doing these things.11:30The immersion* of John, was it from heaven or from men? AnswerĎ me.

     11:31 And they were reasoning with themselves, saying, If we say, From heaven; he will be saying, Therefore why did youĎ not believe him? 11:32 But should we say, From men? (They feared the people. All held that John really was a prophet.)

     11:33 And they answered and say to Jesus, We do not know.

     And Jesus answered and says to them, Neither do I tell youĎ by what authority I am doing these things.
