Read Mark 11:12-25 as a group.
Why does Jesus curse the fig tree? In what way is the fig tree a picture of what was happening at the Temple?
Was Jesus anger merely due to the fact that animals were being sold and money was being exchanged at the Temple? What was the real reason for his anger?
In what way does what happened to the fig tree foreshadow what would happen to the Temple? What does that say about how seriously God takes our worship of him?
Read 2 Corinthians 3:16-17. What makes people God’s temple?
In what ways are the hearts believers now the battle ground for worship?
How can you fight for pure worship to be maintained in your own heart?
