Jesus Enters Jerusalem (19:28-40) Jesus deliberately fulfilled messianic prophecies. (p86t) Zechariah 9:9 Everyone in Jerusalem, celebrate and shout! Your king has won a victory, and he is coming to you. He is humble and rides on a donkey; he comes on the colt of a donkey. Jesus not only accepted the homage paid to Him as the Messiah, but He insisted that it was legitimate. (v40) The Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, which took place on Sunday before the Crucifixion, was an enacted parable, a dramatic way in which Jesus proclaimed His messiahship. This fulfilled in minute detail the prophecy of Zech. 9:9.

Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem (19:41-44) Jesus knew that the acclaim of the populace would be short-lived. They were blind to the true nature of His kingdom and would reject Him. As a result, Jerusalem would be destroyed, a prophecy that came to pass in A.D.70.
Jesus Cleanses the Temple (19:45-48) The money changers and other merchants were fraudulent in the transactions. Jesus fulfills the prophecy of Mal 3:1-3 by another anacted parable, this one demonstrating His messianic authority with respect to the fraudulent and the commercialisation of the sacrificial system.
Jesus uses OT scriptures (19:45-48) Malachi 3:1-3 1 I, the LORD All-Powerful, will send my messenger to prepare the way for me. Then suddenly the Lord you are looking for will appear in his temple.The messenger you desire is coming with my promise, and he is on his way. 2On the day the Lord comes, he will be like a furnace that purifies silver or like strong soap in a washbasin. No one will be able to stand up to him. 3The LORD will purify the descendants of Levi, as though they were gold or silver. Then they will bring the proper offerings to the LORD, Isaiah 56:7 I will bring them to my holy mountain, where they will celebrate in my house of worship. Their sacrifices and offerings will always be welcome on my altar. Then my house will be known as a house of worship for all nations. Jeremiah 7:11 You are thieves, and you have made my temple your hideout. But I've seen everything you have done.
