Matthew 20:29 – 21:22

  1. What claims concerning the person and work of Jesus are here:
    9a) publicly made by Jesus himself, and
    (b) openly acknowledged by others?
    What particularly provoked either rebuke and indignation, or prayer and acclamation?
    Can you keep silent?
  2. What was Christ condemnation in his cleansing of the temple (21:12, 13), and in his cursing of the fig tree (21:18, 19)?
    If he similarly came into our church or examined our lives, what would he see and say?
