Jesus’ Final Week: TUESDAY
The Authority of Jesus Questioned (Matt. 21:23-27; Mark 11:27-33; Luke 20:1-8)
“On one of the days while He was teaching the people in the temple and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders confronted Him, 2 and they spoke, saying to Him, “Tell us by what authority You are doing these things, or who is the one who gave You this authority?” (Luke 20:1-2 NASB)
Jesus did not answer the question directly. Instead, he tossed the question back to the Jewish religious leaders putting them in a dilemma.
Jesus teaches in the Temple (Matt. 21:28-23:39; Mark 12:1-44; Luke 20:9-21:4)
The conflict between Jesus and the Jewish religious leaders was heating up at this point to the extent they plotted to kill him. Jesus taught a series of lessons as a response to the questions of the religious leaders. He told a parable of the vineyard which pictured Israel as a vineyard and is about to be given out to others (Luke 20:9-18).
Jesus Anointed, Bethany (Matt. 26:6-13; Mark 14:3-9; John 12:2-11)
Jesus returned to the house of Mary, Martha and Lazarus. Mary sensing that it could probably be the last time they would be with Jesus, washed his feet with expensive perfume and wiping them with her hair.
