Open your Bible to the eleventh chapter of Mark, the eleventh chapter of Mark. Before us is a monumental day in redemptive history, the history of the world, God's history. It is a serious day and it is a profound day because it is on this day that our Lord Jesus pronounces a curse, essentially, on the temple in Jerusalem.

And last week we looked at that and identified it as the false coronation of the true King. At the end of that day, according to verse 11 of Mark 11, He went into the temple and He looked around. And He didn't like what He saw. He had been there many times in His life. Three years before this, at the same kind of Passover season, He had assaulted and attacked the temple and He would do it again. But in verse 11 we find out that He is checking it out to plan His action for the next day. It is then Tuesday, in the morning He is returning with His disciples to Jerusalem and to the temple....
