A lot of things happen in Matthew 21:12-22. First Jesus goes to the Temple. Then He confronts a bunch of merchants. Then He heals a bunch of people. Then He has another confrontation, this time with some religious leaders. Then He curses a fig tree. Then He caps it all off by talking about moving mountains! However there is a thread that ties all of these seemingly unrelated events together, and it has to do with the fact that Jesus is the Rightful Judge of Israel. In this sermon, we consider six groups of people whom Jesus judges in this text so that we can better understand what is – and what is not – pleasing to Him.
