The Triumphal Entry
(Zechariah 9:9–13; Matthew 21:1–11; Luke 19:28–40; John 12:12–19)

1And when they came nere to Hierusalem, to Bethphage and Bethania vnto the mount of Oliues, he sent forth two of his disciples, 2And sayd vnto them, Goe your wayes into that towne that is ouer against you, and assoone as ye shall enter into it, ye shall finde a colte tied, whereon neuer man sate: loose him, and bring him. 3And if any man say vnto you, Why doe ye this? Say that the Lord hath neede of him, and straightway he will send him hither. 4And they went their way, and found a colt tyed by the doore without, in a place where two wayes met, and they loosed him. 5Then certaine of them, that stoode there, sayd vnto them, What doe ye loosing the colt? 6And they sayde vnto them, as Iesus had commanded them: So they let them goe. 7And they brought the colte to Iesus, & cast their garments on him, and he sate vpon him. 8And many spred their garments in the way: other cut downe branches off the trees, & strawed them in the way.

9And they that went before, and they that folowed, cryed, saying, Hosanna: blessed be hee that commeth in the Name of the Lord.

10Blessed be the kingdome that commeth in the Name of the Lorde of our father Dauid: Hosanna, O thou which art in the highest heauens.

11So Iesus entred into Hierusalem, and into the Temple: and when he had looked about on all things, and now it was euening, he went forth vnto Bethania with the twelue.

Jesus Curses the Fig Tree
(Matthew 21:18–22; Mark 11:20–25)

12And on the morowe when they were come out from Bethania, he was hungry. 13And seeing a fig tree afarre off, that had leaues, he went to see if he might finde any thing thereon: but when he came vnto it, hee found nothing but leaues: for the time of figges was not yet. 14Then Iesus answered, and sayd to it, Neuer man eate fruite of thee hereafter while the world standeth: and his disciples heard it.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple
(Matthew 21:12–17; Luke 19:45–48; John 2:12–25)

15And they came to Hierusalem, & Iesus went into the Temple, & began to cast out them that solde and bought in the Temple, and ouerthrewe the tables of the money changers, and the seates of them that solde doues. 16Neither would hee suffer that any man should cary a vessell through the Temple. 17And he taught, saying vnto them, Is it not written, Mine house shalbe called the house of prayer vnto all nations? but you haue made it a denne of theeues. 18And the Scribes and hie Priestes heard it, and sought howe to destroy him: for they feared him, because the whole multitude was astonied at his doctrine.

19But when euen was come, Iesus went out of the citie.

The Withered Fig Tree
(Matthew 21:18–22; Mark 11:12–14)

20And in the morning as they iourneyed together, they saw the figge tree dried vp from the rootes. 21Then Peter remembred, and said vnto him, Master, beholde, the figge tree which thou cursedst, is withered. 22And Iesus answered, and said vnto them, Haue the faith of God.

23For verely I say vnto you, that whosoeuer shall say vnto this mountaine, Be thou taken away, and cast into the sea, and shall not wauer in his heart, but shall beleeue that those things which he saieth, shal come to passe, whatsoeuer he saieth, shall be done to him. 24Therefore I say vnto you, Whatsoeuer ye desire when ye pray, beleeue that ye shall haue it, and it shalbe done vnto you. 25But when ye shall stand, and pray, forgiue, if ye haue any thing against any man, that your Father also which is in heauen, may forgiue you your trespasses. 26For if you will not forgiue, your Father which is in heauen, will not pardon you your trespasses.

Jesus’ Authority Challenged
(Matthew 21:23–27; Luke 20:1–8)

27Then they came againe to Hierusalem: and as he walked in the Temple, there came to him ye hie Priestes, & the Scribes, & the Elders, 28And said vnto him, By what authoritie doest thou these things? and who gaue thee this authoritie, that thou shouldest doe these things? 29Then Iesus answered, and saide vnto them, I will also aske of you a certaine thing, & answere ye me, and I will tell you by what authoritie I do these things. 30The baptisme of Iohn, was it from heauen, or of men? answere me. 31And they thought with themselues, saying, If we shall say, From heauen, he will say, Why then did ye not beleeue him? 32But if we say, Of men, we feare the people: for all men counted Iohn, that he was a Prophet in deede. 33Then they answered, and saide vnto Iesus, We cannot tell; Iesus answered, and said vnto them, Neither will I tell you by what authoritie I doe these things.
