Today is Holy Monday. It is the day in Holy Week on which Jesus cleansed the temple and cursed the fig tree that did not bear fruit.
The Gospels spend a great deal of time focusing on the events of Holy Week and the resurrection. In Matthew's Gospel, it is one quarter of the book. In John's Gospel, it is roughly one half!
If it helps you to keep the events sorted out in your mind, you can find a Holy Week Timeline here. You can click on it to enlarge it for better viewing. It included various colored lines so that you can track the whereabouts and activities of some of the main characters. Scripture references are also included. Pretty cool! (From BibleGateway.com)
