Matthew 21:15 - 21:19

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In Matthew chapter 21, Jesus uses the phrase "You perfected praise" instead of "You ordained strength against enemies" from Psalm, indicating that praise is a weapon against God's enemies. Jesus also refers to a fig tree, which he finds without fruit. This parable is in line with previous teachings that Israel was supposed to produce fruit but failed to do so. The speaker, Steve Gregg, notes that Jesus often visited Jerusalem but would stay in Bethany with his friends.
