    • 2. Let’s Open Our Bibles To Mark 11:1-11 • Jesus' Triumphal Entry Into Jerusalem, Mark 11:1-11 • Jesus' Cursing of the Fig Tree, Mark 11:12-14 • Jesus' Cleansing Of The Temple, Mark 11:15-19 • Jesus' Lesson Of The Fig Tree, Mark 11:20-26 • Jesus' Authority Challenged, Mark 11:27-33
    • 3. Mark 11:1, Jesus' Triumphal Entry Into Jerusalem • Mark 11:1 As they approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, • Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem on a borrowed donkey’s colt!
    • 4. One Of The Most Significant Events • The Archaeological Study Bible says, "Jesus entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday represents one of the most significant public events of his ministry. Each of the four Gospels records this incident, though with distinctive details... Central to each report is Jesus' deliberate choice to enter the city riding up on a donkey. Scholars have noted three significant points regarding this chosen mount. These aspects are not mutually exclusive, and each contributes to a more complete appreciation of the meaning of Jesus' symbolic action and it's decisive consequences: • The donkey was a traditional mount for kings and rulers in the ancient near East...; Jesus was therefore making an implicit claim to be the king of his people. • The act of riding into Jerusalem on a donkey near the
    • 5. One Of The Most Significant Events • time of the Passover celebration invoked a central image of Messianic expectation, linked to key Biblical texts... Two of the four Evangelists explained the significance of Jesus entrance explicitly as the fulfillment of Scripture.... In Jewish literature and teaching, moreover, the image of a king on a donkey approaching Jerusalem was consistently understood to signify the arrival of the Messianic King. Thus, Jesus was claiming to be the Messiah and proclaiming that the age of restoration was dawning through his own person. • In light of the frequent Old Testament association of horses with war and human pride, the donkey may have presented an image of peaceful humility. Jesus, in this interpretation, was making a statement regarding the nature of his kingship.…"
    • 6. I’ll Summarize This Significant Event • The donkey =kings and rulers, Jesus was claiming to be the king of his people. • Riding a donkey into Jerusalem at Passover= Messianic King and the age of restoration • Horses = war and human pride, the donkey=peaceful humility • This was the nature of His 1st. Coming • Isaiah 42:1 "Behold, My Servant …. 3"A bruised reed He will not break And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice. • Matthew 12:20 "A BATTERED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK OFF, AND A SMOLDERING WICK HE WILL NOT PUT OUT, UNTIL HE LEADS JUSTICE TO VICTORY. • 21 "AND IN HIS NAME THE GENTILES WILL HOPE.“ [Have You]
    • 7. Mark 11:1, Bethphage and Bethany • Mark 11:1 As they approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, [Luke 19:29] • Bethphage is close to Bethany • Matthew 21:1 When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me.
    • 8. Matthew 21:1, Bethphage • Matthew 21:1 When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, • Bethphage is close to Bethany • Mark 11:1 As they approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, [Luke 19:29]
    • 9. Jerusalem From The Mount Of Olives, Looking West Across The Kidron Valley
    • 10. Mark 11:2, A Colt Tied There • Mark 11:2 and said to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here. • Genesis 49:8 Judah, your brothers will praise you. Your hand will be on the neck of your enemies, your father's sons will bow down before you. 9 You are a lion's cub, Judah, from the prey, my son, you have gone up. He crouches and lies down like a lion; like a lioness– who will rouse him? 10 The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs; the nations will obey him. 11 Binding his foal to the vine, and his colt to the choicest vine, he will wash his garments in wine, his robes in the blood of grapes.
    • 11. Mark 11:3, Fetch A Donkey • Mark 11:3 "If anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' you say, 'The Lord has need of it'; and immediately he will send it back here." • Jesus said “he will send it” = “Here’s my keys” • How’d He know? • #1, Pre-arranged, #2, owners recognized them, #3, H. Spirit • Luke 19:33 As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?" • Mark 11:2 …a colt tied there, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here. • Riding an unbroken colt is supernatural (we tried it), and “its owners” wouldn’t have asked if it was prearranged. • 520 years earlier Zechariah wrote 9:9
    • 12. This Is Prophecy Fulfilled • Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. • Matthew 21:4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
    • 13. John 2:4, My Time Is Not Yet • Jesus was intentionally fulfilling Zechariah 9:9 • Jesus did this during His 1st. Coming, on Palm Sunday, by His Triumphal Entry, literally • No longer John 7:6…"My time is not yet…”, • John 2:4 And Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does that have to do with us? My hour has not yet come." • In all 4 gospels; Luke 19:28, Mk 11, & John 12:12- 16 • Yet, Zechariah 9:9 has a context;
    • 14. Zechariah 9:8-16, Split Fulfillment • Zechariah 9:8-16 But I will camp around My house because of an army, Because of him who passes by and returns; And no oppressor will pass over them anymore, For now I have seen with My eyes. 9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. 10 I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem; And the bow of war will be cut off. And He will speak peace to the nations; And His dominion will be from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth. 11 As for you also, because of the blood of My covenant with you, I have set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 12 Return to the stronghold, O prisoners who have the hope;
    • 15. Zechariah 9:8-16, Split Fulfillment • This very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you. 13 For I will bend Judah as My bow, I will fill the bow with Ephraim. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece; And I will make you like a warrior's sword. • 14 Then the LORD will appear over them, And His arrow will go forth like lightning [Luke 17:24]; And the Lord GOD will blow the trumpet, And will march in the storm winds of the south. 15 The LORD of hosts will defend them. And they will devour and trample on the sling stones; And they will drink and be boisterous as with wine; And they will be filled like a sacrificial basin, Drenched like the corners of the altar. • 16 And the LORD their God will save them in that day As the flock of His people; For they are as the stones of a crown, Sparkling in His land.
    • 16. Zechariah 9:9-10, Literal Fulfillment • If Jesus literally fulfilled, historically, Zech 9:9; • Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. • Then Jesus will literally fulfill Zech 9:10, yet future; • Zechariah 9:10 I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem; And the bow of war will be cut off. And He will speak peace to the nations; And His dominion will be from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.
    • 17. Mat 21:5/Zech 9:9, “daughter of Zion” • Zechariah 9:9…O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem!... • NET Matthew 21:5 "Tell the people of Zion, 'Look, your king is coming to you, unassuming and seated on a donkey… • NET Notes (Mat 21:5) = “The idiom "daughter of Zion" has been translated as "people of Zion" because the original idiom, while firmly embedded in the Christian tradition, is not understandable to most modern English readers.”
    • 18. Mark 11:8 Archaeological Study Bible, Coats Archaeological Study Bible on 21:8 says, “Spreading their cloaks on the roads was an act of royal homage. The word "branches" means "leaves" or "leafy branches," which were readily available in nearby fields. Only John mentioned palm branches (see Jn 12:13), which may have come from Jericho, since they are not native to Jerusalem ...
    • 19. Mark 11:11, Luke Records That Jesus Condemned Jerusalem • Luke 19:42 saying, "If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. 43 "For the days shall come upon you when your enemies will throw up a bank before you, and surround you, and hem you in on every side, • 44 and will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”
    • 20. Mark 11:11, Daniel Records The “the time of your visitation” • Daniel 9:24 "Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place. • Daniel 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined.
    • 21. Israel Was Destroyed In AD 70 • “will level you to the ground” • will not leave in you one stone upon another • Why? “because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.” • You mean Jesus held them accountable to know and understand Bible prophecy? • Absolutely!

And His disciples were listening. • Matthew 21:19 Seeing a lone fig tree by the road… • God set Israel alone, unique among nations

    • 25. Matthew 21:19, Lone Fig Tree • Proverbs 27:18 He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, And he who cares for his master will be honored. • Have they been tending “the fig tree” • Isaiah 34:4 And all the host of heaven will wear away, And the sky will be rolled up like a scroll; All their hosts will also wither away As a leaf withers from the vine, Or as one withers from the fig tree….their land will be soaked with blood… 8 For the LORD has a day of vengeance, A year of recompense for the cause of Zion.
    • 26. Matthew 21:19, 1st Mention; Fig Tree • Judges 9:8 "Once the trees went forth to anoint a king over them, and they said to the olive tree, 'Reign over us!' 9 "But the olive tree said to them, 'Shall I leave my fatness with which God and men are honored, and go to wave over the trees?' 10 "Then the trees said to the fig tree, 'You come, reign over us!' 11 "But the fig tree said to them, 'Shall I leave my sweetness and my good fruit, and go to wave over the trees?'
    • 27. Jeremiah 8:5, The Fig Tree Judged • Jeremiah 8:5-14 "Why then has this people, Jerusalem, Turned away in continual apostasy?... they have rejected the word of the LORD, And what kind of wisdom do they have? 10 "Therefore I will give their wives to others, Their fields to new owners…From the prophet even to the priest Everyone practices deceit….At the time of their punishment they shall be brought down," Says the LORD. 13 "I will surely snatch them away," declares the LORD; "There will be no grapes on the vine And no figs on the fig tree, And the leaf will wither; And what I have given them will pass away."'“ 14 …the LORD our God has doomed us And given us poisoned water to drink, For we have sinned against the LORD…

But such an attitude is unbiblical and confused. It is unbiblical to think of doubt as a virtue; to the contrary, doubt is always portrayed in the Scriptures as something detrimental to spiritual life. Doubt never builds up; it always destroys. How could the students I knew at Wheaton College have got things so totally reversed? It is probably because they had confused thinking about their faith with doubting their faith. We need to keep the distinction clear." [2]I agree.”

    • 47. Jude 22 Matthew 21:21 Luke 24:38 Mark 11:23, Doubt in the Bible, blogos.org• The Best Christians Are Thinking Christians, Not Doubting Christians • By Robin Schumacher One page/printer friendly The title of Dr. Paul de Vries' recent article — "The Best Christians are Doubting Christians" (Part 1 and Part 2) — initially struck me like lemon juice in the eye. Judging by the comments the article generated, I wasn't alone in my first impression of the writing. Having read the article a couple of times now, I understand what Dr. de Vries is trying to say and fully appreciate the message he's attempting to convey. While I don't want to come across as some pedantic, uptight guy who's ready to make mountains out of molehills, there are times when terms do indeed matter. The point I'd like to make is this: Doubt is not something valued in the Bible. Now, I don't want to put words in Dr. de Vries mouth, but what I think he was trying to say is that the best Christians are thinking Christians vs. doubting Christians. On that point I couldn't agree more and would argue that such a thing is what we're commanded to be in Scripture.Doubt in the Bible • Sometimes exploring the Hebrew/Greek behind our English translations of God's Word provides a rich window into a deeper meaning of the term than our own language can provide. However, not in this case: Distazō — 1. to have doubts concerning something, doubt, waver 2. to be uncertain about taking a particular course of action, hesitate in doubt. [1] The word 'doubt', when found in the Bible, means exactly what you'd expect. While Dr. de Vries says in his article, "I know of no Biblical passage where we are even warned against doubt," I would instead argue that 'doubt' is never used favorably in its context within Scripture (especially Romans 14:23, which explicitly links doubt and sin together): "Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, 'You of little faith, why did you doubt?'" (Matthew 14:31). "And Jesus answered and said to them, 'Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, "Be taken up and cast into the sea," it will happen'" (Matthew 21:21; Mark 11:23). "When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful" (Matthew 28:17). "And He said to them, 'Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?'" (Luke 24:38). "But he who doubts is condemned if he eats, because his eating is not from faith; and whatever is not from faith is sin" (Romans 14:23). "But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind" (James 1:6). "And have mercy on some, who are doubting" (Jude 22). Dr. de Vries may try to label such verses as exhibitions of "unbelief" vs. doubt, but there's no getting around the term used, with the above verses in their context conveying a sense of uncertainty, a wavering, and the like in a negative sense. In other words, doubt isn't a good thing.Thinking vs. Doubting • Now as I mentioned upfront, I believe that the idea Dr. de Vries is aiming at is that thinking about spiritual matters is a very important thing, and in that regard, he is spot on. But there is a difference in careful and mindful scrutiny of truth claims and doubt. In his book, Hard Questions, Real Answers, Dr. William Lane Craig makes this distinction between doubt and thoughtful examination of belief:When I was an undergraduate at Wheaton College, an attitude was prevalent among the students that doubt was actually a virtue and that a Christian who did not doubt his faith was somehow intellectually deficient or naïve. But such an attitude is unbiblical and confused. It is unbiblical to think of doubt as a virtue; to the contrary, doubt is always portrayed in the Scriptures as something detrimental to spiritual
    • 48. Matthew 6:14-15, 18:35 Mark 11:26, Forgiveness • A Forgiveness Question • Friday, February 21st, 2014Forgiveness • Q. I read your articles online constantly. I’ve seen a number on forgiveness, and thought I had a good grasp of what the Bible teaches about it. I’m confused with what I’m hearing lately on television. It’s more than one source saying the same thing: “If you don’t forgive, then God won’t forgive you.” I ignored it at first, thinking it was a tie-in to a Prosperity Gospel marketing ploy, but now it has me wondering if I’ve missed something in my studies. Is there any scriptural basis to this statement? I can’t believe there is as I believe in OSAS, so my sins (including not forgiving someone) are forgiven, as I pray constantly that God would give me the ability to forgive the one who wronged me. Please let me know if I’ve missed something. • A. In Matt. 6:14-15 Jesus said, “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” • This statement was made in the context of His teaching on the Lord’s prayer (Matt. 6:9-13) which only believers can pray , so this is not a salvation issue. In the parable of the unmerciful servant He made the same point (Matt. 18:23-35) and again is was a matter between believers. • Here’s the point. Since God has forgiven us for everything, He expects believers to forgive each other for the little things that come between us. Failure to do so is a sin that puts a strain on our relationship with God. It can’t cost us our salvation, but it can deprive us of blessings we may have otherwise received. As soon as we forgive the person who wronged us we’ll be restored. • It’s important to note that the other person’s reaction is irrelevant. We’re expected to forgive them regardless of whether they’ve asked us to or even admit any wrongdoing. All that’s between them and the Lord. • http://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/a-forgiveness- question/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Gracethrufaith+%28GraceThruFaith%29 • Mark 11:26 "But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.“ • Matthew 18:35 "My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart."
