Monday of Holy Week

Gospel Reading: JN 12:1-11

Who is Jesus in his ‘Last Week’?

  • Fearless
  • A dangerous memory
  • Driven by zeal for his Father
  • Challenges the caricature of worship in the Temple
  • Confronts their Religious symbol of the presence of God- The Temple
  • Sees through the hypocrisy, outward show, corruption, exploitation
  • Sums it up in the phrase ‘ den of thieves’
  • Compares them corporately and individually to a shriveled fig tree that has no fruit

Worship

  • For Jesus all worship that does not seek Justice, is a sham!
  • For Jesus all worship that does not risk the consequences of confronting injustice is a sham!
  • What is the state of our/my worship?
  • What is this saying to us/me?
