Sermon Notes

“Mark 11:27-33”

We review Mark 11:18-26 to set the context for the rest of the chapter. Jesus is confronting the chief priest and the scribes at the Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus had already made His Triumphal entry into Jerusalem. He had come as the High Priest in the order of Melchizedek. Jesus came to replace the existing high priest and the whole Temple system of substitutionary atoned-blood sacrifice with His own body and blood, the once-and-for-all sacrifice for the sins of the world (Hebrews 10). Jesus had previously turned over the tables of the money-changers and drove them (along with the animals) from the Temple claiming His house as a house of prayer. Jesus had cursed the fig tree as a sign for Israel in the prophetic words of Joel and Amos. Verse 27 picks up with Jesus’ activities on the next day.
