It is Wednesday 11th

Jesus returns to Jerusalem with His disciples and they see the fig tree which He had cursed on the previous day.

By the time of  His arrival at the temple, someone had already reported to the religious rulers (possibly Judas), and they angrily  confront Him, asking who had given Him the authority to do these things (Mk 11: 1 – 20)

Jesus refuses to divulge the source of His authority and taught the people

He leaves the temple and continues to teach the disciples about His death and the signs of  the last days.

The religious rulers are even more  highly provoked by this new development and  are more determined to undermine His power by killing Him.
