Matthew 21 Overview

This chapter brings us to Jerusalem with Jesus. There are many important events that take place in chapter 21. Here’s a list of the highlights:

1. Triumphal Entry

2. Second purification of the Temple

3. Barren fig tree cursed

4. The secret of answered prayer

5.  Jesus’ authority questioned

6. Parable of the two sons

7. Parable of the householder


The scene is set for the incredibly dramatic events that take Jesus to the cross and the tomb, and to His glorious resurrection.  If you ever get the opportunity to see a good Passion Play, it is an experience you will always treasure.  My daughter and I were privileged to see the play in Oberammergau, Germany, in 2000. We went with my son and his wife.  It brought the events of that week to life in a whole new way, and I’m so thankful we were able to be there.
