Matthew 21:12-22 – “Hangry” Jesus

For those unaware of the modern slang term “hangry” it’s a combination of the two words “hungry” and “angry.” Many people read this section and think that Jesus was really angry and really wanted a fig from that tree. However, the actions of Jesus in this text are deeply symbolic and rich with prophetic interpretation. Jesus would have entered the temple and walked into the court of the gentiles.
