Entering Jerusalem

MARK 11:1-33 | simon Marshman

Day 1: (v1-11) The King Approaches, but will you recognise him?

Old Testament Passages of note:

  • Genesis 49:11, a promise of the Messiah to come in the line of Judah, and the only other place in the Bible that speaks of a tethered colt
  • Zechariah 9:9, describing the Messiah entering Jerusalem on the colt of a donkey
  • Zechariah 14:4, naming the Mount of Olives as significant in God’s work of salvation and judgment.
  • Psalm 118:25-27, noting that Jesus quotes from v22-23 in chapter 12.
  • Micah 7:1-6, describing Israel as a fig tree and God looking for fruit but finding none.
  • Isaiah 56:7, the Temple as a house of prayer for all nations
  • Jeremiah 7:11, judgment upon those who have made the temple a den of robbers



Day 2: (v12-19) The King Approaches, and he will bring an end to the old ways.


Day 3: (v20-33) The King Approaches, so will you delight in his reign?


Reflection for Lent:

Will you follow this Jesus?
