April 15th: Holy Monday

On Monday, Jesus throws the money changers from the Temple. 

The morning after the Triumphant entry, Jesus returned with his disciples to Jerusalem.    As He was making His way to the city, He cursed a fig tree because it failed to bear fruit. 

When Jesus arrived at the Temple he found the courts full of money changers.  He began overturning their tables and clearing the Temple, saying, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves.” Luke 19:46

On Monday evening Jesus stayed in Bethany again, probably in the home of his friends, Mary, Martha, and Lazarus.

Monday’s events are recorded in Matthew 21:12–22, Mark 11:15–19, Luke 19:45-48, and John 2:13-17.
