THE GOSPEL of MARK Chapter 11.

The Triumphal Entry

Mark 11:1 And when they came near to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sent forth two of his disciples, 2 And said unto them, Go your way into the village opposite you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, you shall find a colt tied, open which no man ever sat; loose him, and bring him. 3 And if any man say unto you, Why do you this? You say that the Lord has need of him; and he will send him back straightaway. 4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door outside in a place where two ways met; and they loosed him. 5 And one of them that stood there said unto them, What are you doing, loosing the colt? 6 And they said unto them, even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go. 7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him. 8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and spread them in the way. 9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried out loudly, saying, Hosanna, deliver we pray; Spoken well of is he that comes in the name of the Lord: 10 Spoken well of be the kingdom of our father David, that comes in the name of the Lord: Hosanna, deliver in the highest. 11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the hour was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
Jesus Curses the Fig Tree.

12 And next day, as they were coming out of Bethany, he was hungry: 13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if expecting he might find something upon it: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of you hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple.

15 And they on coming to Jerusalem: Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves; 16 And he would not allow any man to carry any vessel through the temple. 17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but you have made it a den of thieves. 18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people were astonished at his doctrine. 19 And when evening was come, he went out of the city. 

The Lesson from the Withered Fig Tree.

20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21 And Peter remembering said unto him, Master, look, the fig tree which you cursed is withered away. 22 And Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For truly I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be you removed, and be you cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says. 24 Therefore I say unto you, Whatsoever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you have received them, and you shall have them. 25 And when you stand praying, if you have anything against any man, send it away: that your Father also which is in the sky above may send away you your trespasses. 26 But if you do not send away others trespasses, neither will your Father which is in the sky send away your trespasses. 

The Authority of Jesus Challenged.

27 And they came again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there came to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, 28 And say unto him, By what authority do you these things? and who gave you this authority to do these things? 29 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30 The baptism of John, was it of the sky above, or of men? answer me. 31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, of the sky above; he will say, Why then did you not believe him? 32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed. 33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering said unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
