Day 3 of Holy Week.  Tuesday.


Tuesday before Christ was crucified was a very full day for Jesus.  Knowing it was His final week on this earth, as a human, you can really see how hard he was working to get every little last bit of business in that He could before His departure.


The Tuesday of the Holy Week is the day when the famous incident between Jesus and Pharisees is thought to have taken place. The altercation that tried to trap Jesus into making a blasphemous, or, anti-god remark. (Mark 11:27-33). On this day Jesus also taught in parables in addition to confronting the Jewish leaders (Matthew 21:28-23:36).



Then, after the Greeks asked to see Jesus (John 12:20-26), He then delivered the famous Olivet Discourse . This was the message he gave on the Mount of Olives about the destruction of Jerusalem to come and the signs of the last days. (Matt 24)


Quite a bit of ancient prophecy was to be fulfilled on this day as well.  Some of it being that He would be rejected by his own people (Isaiah 53:1,3; Psalm 41:19).


Eventually Judas agreed to betray Jesus (Matthew 26:14-16). What time of day, we are not sure, but most agree, it was on Tuesday.


As you can see, it was a very busy day for our Lord and full of meaning.
