His Last Week by William E. Barton

MONDAY--THE DAY OF AUTHORITY.

THE CURSING OF THE FIG TREE.

And on the morrow, when they were come out from Bethany, he hungered. And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs. And he answered and said unto it, |No man eat fruit from thee henceforward for ever.|

And his disciples heard it.

THE CLEANSING OF THE TEMPLE.

And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and them that bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves: and he would not suffer that any man should carry a vessel through the temple. And he taught, and said unto them, |Is it not written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? but ye have made it a den of robbers.|

And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children that were crying in the temple and saying, |Hosanna to the son of David|: they were moved with indignation, and said unto him, |Hearest thou what these are saying?|

And Jesus saith unto them, |Yea: did ye never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise'?|

And the chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people sought to destroy him: and they could not find what they might do; for the people all hung upon him, listening.

And he left them, and went forth out of the city to Bethany, and lodged there.
