It was on the Monday...


Mark 11:15-19

Then they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling and those who were buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold doves; and he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. He was teaching and saying, ‘Is it not written,“My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations”? But you have made it a den of robbers.’ And when the chief priests and the scribes heard it, they kept looking for a way to kill him; for they were afraid of him, because the whole crowd was spellbound by his teaching. And when evening came, Jesus and his disciples' went out of the city

The crowd has dispersed for now
but still Jesus hogs the limelight
upsetting the temple traders
re-asserting the law
fascinating onlookers.
The religious big wigs
did not appreciate
that he pointed out their failings
and they're already determined
to get him
they are desperate
to put an end
to his unconventional behaviour
that attracts attention 
and encourages ordinary people
to act subversively.
Keep a low profile?
He wouldn't know how.
He is on a mission - 
uncovering  failure
all the way to the cross.
