We have now come to the last week '
of Jesus' earthly life," which is crowd-,
ed with significant happenings. It
is worthy of note that the records of
this last week cover a tMrd of eiwh of
the Gospels of Matthetw and Mark, a)
fourth of the Gospel df Luke, and ten
pages of the twenty-four of the Gospel
of John,:.';"'".;. -'" W'";V'
lit was the Passover Season, a time
when the city of Jerusalem was crowd
ed with visitors from all over Pales
tine. Saturday, the ( Jewish Salblbath,,'
was spent by Jesus ,and his disciples
quietly in Beithany, and it is now Sun-
day, A. D 30v !The week opens wMi!
the greatest ovation ever accorded to I
Jesus; . But the acclaim was not from'
the citizens of Jerusalem, but from
admiring Galileans who,, like himself,
gre. pilgrims to the Passover. This
' (public demonstration bears no organic
relationship to . the drama that de
velops: it does not figure in the con
flicts or charges at the trials, and
: these enthusiastic .crowds do not ap
pear later to' seek to have, their Hero,
In our Christian experience, this ova
tion has always symbolized (the tri
umphant element in the life of Jesus
Palm Sunday." 'W. E. Bundy.
Upon entering Jerusalem, Jesus
(went immediately to the Temple and,
iMark declares: 'When he had looked
around about upon all things, it being
now eventide, he iwent out into
(Bethany." ; This note, is significant
because it tells us that the cleansing
of the temple was not something which
Jesus, did on the spur of the moment.
iHw keen, must have been that glance
around , his Father's house and how
' sensitive was the spirit that interpret
ed what was seen! But he did nothing
; then. He and his disciples went back
to Bethany to spend the night and
it was there,; during the flight hours,
; that Jesus communed long and deeply
with his Heavenly Father and receiv
ed new strength of mind and will to
act upon what he had seen in the tem-
pie. 'vr:.:;!';.-'j. .
Returning to the temple the follow
ing morning, the same familiar sight
; greeted him. The court was filled
iwith traders who sold doves to the
people for temple sacrifices, and who
changed the strange currency of the
; ipilgrims from afar so that they could
make their temple offerings. There
was nothing wrong in the fact that the
traders .were there: the authorities had
granted them places in the court to
carry on their business. The wrong
was that they were defrauders, cheat
ing the pilgrims, and not honest in
their dealings; they sold their doves
for exorbitant prices to the poor; and
they cheated the pilgrims on the rate
of exchange. They were just what Je
sus called them: a den of 'robbers!
When Jesus took command of the
Temple, driving the traders and mon-cy-changers
out of it with ' stinging
words, he was assuming- the highest
authority which any child of Israel
could' imagine. The rule, of the tem
ple was vested by every legal right
in the High Priest, and his possession
of that power made him the titular
ruler of the Jews.. Now, a Galilean
Teacher had brushed the High Priest
aside, accusing him of the most blas
phemous misconduct, and took his pow-
er, wielding it as now his own. By
- what right? Only one answer could
be made to that question. This Gali
lean was claiming a direct commission
' from God only such a commission
could supersede that of Cadaphas. Je
sus of Nazareth was setting himself
up as supreme Judge of Israel and his
judgment was beginning at the House
of God "my Father's house l" ": '
This further aroused the enmity of
the. religious leaders and they were
determined to get rid of one who ques
tioned their authority and x who upset
Ihe prevailing order of their day. 'So
-they sent various ones to question him,
hoping th'aft something he said would
trap him and make him liable for se
vere punishment. However, there was
one in the crowd Who had been listen
in'g to the questioning and the skillful
manner in which Jesus --answered , his
critics,' and he was deeply impressed.
: : Of ark tells m that' a Scribe came
to him and asked a questJoit-this
time.a sincere one:" "Which is the
first commandment of all ?" The fact
that this Question was asked by a
Scribe makes it important, for the
Scribes, above all others, in the Jewish
state were learned in the Law. , Jesus
answered him right out of the Law-
IDeut. 6: 45 and Leviticus 19i 18
the same words-that Jesus used about
Jovinsr God and our-neighbor:' That
iwas the heart and core of Jesus' teach
ing and still ' is. If practiced today,
