passion week: monday...

"and they came to jerusalem. and he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of  the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. and he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple.  and he was teaching them and saying to them, “is it not written, ‘my house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? but you have made it a den of robbers.”  and the chief priests and the scribes heard it and were seeking a way to destroy him, for they feared him, because all the crowd was astonished at his teaching." - mark 11:15-18
 "and jesus answered them, 'the hour has come for the son of man to be glorified. truly, truly, i say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. if anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where i am, there will my servant be also. if anyone serves me, the father will honor him.'" - john 12:23-26
