Holy Monday Devotional

Holy Monday
Read: Matthew 21: 18-20; 22:15-46; 23:1-39. Luke 19:45-48, Mark 11:15-18.
Overview: Jesus chased the money-changers out of the Temple.

On Great Monday the Church commemorates the event of the cursing of the fig tree (Mt 21.18-20). In the Gospel
narrative this event is said to have occurred on the morrow of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem (Mt 21.18 and Mk 11. 12). Together with the event of the cleansing of the Temple this episode is another manifestation of Jesus’ divine power and authority and a revelation as well of God’s judgment upon the faithlessness of the Jewish religious classes.
