The Triumphant Entry of Jesus - Mark 11

Mark 11:1 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto  Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth  forth two of his disciples, 

Mark 11:2 And saith unto them, Go  your way into the village over against you: and as soon as  ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never  man sat; loose him, and bring him. 

Mark 11:3 And if any man  say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath  need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.  

Mark 11:4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by  the door without in a place where two ways met; and they  loose him. 

Mark 11:5 And certain of them that stood there said  unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? 

Mark 11:6 And they  said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let  them go. 

Mark 11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast  their garments on him; and he sat upon him. 

Mark 11:8 And  many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down  branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.  

Mark 11:9 And they that went before, and they that followed,  cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the  name of the Lord: 

Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our  father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna  in the highest. 

Gospel of Mark

Mark 11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem,  and into the temple: and when he had looked round about  upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went  out unto Bethany with the twelve.  

Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from  Bethany, he was hungry: 

Mark 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar  off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing  thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but  leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. 

Mark 11:14 And Jesus  answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter  for ever. And his disciples heard it.  

Mark 11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went  into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and  bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the  moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;   

Mark 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry  any vessel through the temple. 

Mark 11:17 And he taught,  saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called  of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den  of thieves. 

Mark 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard  it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared  him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.  

Mark 11:19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.  

Mark 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw  the fig tree dried up from the roots. 

Mark 11:21 And Peter  calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the  fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. 

Mark 11:22 And  Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.  

Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say  unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into  the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe  that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall  have whatsoever he saith. 

Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you,  What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye  receive them, and ye shall have them. 

Mark 11:25 And  when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against  any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive  you your trespasses. 

Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive,  neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your  trespasses.   

Mark 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was  walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests,  and the scribes, and the elders, 

Mark 11:28 And say unto him,  By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave  thee this authority to do these things? 

Mark 11:29 And Jesus  answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one  question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what  authority I do these things. 

Mark 11:30 The baptism of John,  was it from heaven, or of men? answer me. 

Mark 11:31 And  they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say,  From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?  

Mark 11:32 But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people:  for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.  

Mark 11:33 And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot  tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell  you by what authority I do these things.
