Homework for 10/20

Read Mark 11:1-33

1. What is the crowd’s attitude towards Jesus as he arrives in Jerusalem? (See Mark 11:8-10.)

2. The Old Testament prophet Zechariah wrote about a time when someone would ride into Jerusalem (also called Zion) on a colt.

Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. — Zechariah 9:9

What would the crowd understand about Jesus when he arrived in that way?

Read Mark 12:1 – 13:37

3. How do the religious leaders respond to Jesus in Mark 11:18 and 12:12?

4. How do these leaders treat Jesus as a result of their fear of him? (See Mark 11:27-33; 12:13-17.)

5. The Sadducees were a group of religious leaders who did believe in resurrection. In Mark 12:18-23 they tried to make Jesus look foolish with their question about the resurrection. What did Jesus say was the real reason for their disbelief? (See Mark 12:24.)

6. What other criticism does Jesus make of religious leaders? (See Mark 12:38-40.)

7. A few days later the mood of the crowd had turned. Led by their religious leaders they demanded the death of Jesus (see Mark 15:9-13). Does it surprise you that it is possible to be respected, even religious, and still reject Jesus? Why or why not?

Do you have any questions about Mark 11:1 – 13:37
