[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, Proceed* into the village which is in front of you* and immediately while you* travel into it, you* will find a young-donkey {i.e. a foal}that has been tied upon which no one from mankind has sat. When you*have loosed it, lead* ithere. 11:3And if anyone says to you*, Why are you* doing* this? Say* that the Lord has need of him, and immediately he will send it here.11:4 Now they went away and found a young-donkey that has been tied to 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 you* doing*, loosening the young-donkey?

     11:6 And they said to them just-as Jesus commanded and they allowed them. 11:7 And they led the young-donkey 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 spreading them in the road. 11:9 And those who precede him and those who are followinghim, 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, after they went out from Bethany, he hungered. 11:13 And having seen a fig tree from afar having foliage, he came to see if he will then find anything in it, and after he came upon it, he found nothing except foliage; 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 you* 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, for* 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 while traveling by in the morning, 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, Have* faith of God.11:23For* assuredly I am saying to you*, 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 you*, All things, as many things as you* would ask for whenpraying, believe* that you* receive them and you* will have them.11:25And whenever you* stand praying, if you* have anything against anyone, forgive*them; in order that your* Father the one in the heavens may also forgive you* your* trespasses.11:26But if you* do not forgive, neither will your* Father, the one in the heavens, be forgiving your* 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 you* one question, and answer* me, and I will tell you* by what authority I am doing* these things.11:30The immersion* of John, was it from heaven or from men? Answer* me.

     11:31 And they were reasoning with themselves, saying, If we say, From heaven; he will be saying, Therefore why did you* not believe him? 11:32 But should we say, From men? (They feared the people. For* 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 you* by what authority I am doing*these things.
