When was the fig tree cursed by Jesus, before or after the temple was cleansed? MATTHEW 21:12–19 (cf. Mark 11:12–14, 20–24)

MATTHEW 21:12–19 (cf. Mark 11:12–14, 20–24)—When was the fig tree cursed by Jesus, before or the temple was cleansed?

: Matthew places the cursing of the fig tree the cleansing of the temple. But Mark places the cursing before the temple was cleansed. But, it cannot be both. Did one writer make a mistake?

SOLUTION: Jesus actually cursed the fig tree to the temple as Mark said, but this does not mean that Matthew’s account mistaken. two trips to the temple, and He cursed the fig tree trip.

Mark 11:11 says that entered the temple the day of triumphal entry. When enters the temple, Mark does not mention making any proclamations against any wrongdoing. Verse 12 says “Now the next day,” referring to the trip to the fig tree the to the temple the day. this day, threw out those buying and selling in the temple. Matthew, however, addresses the two trips of to the temple as though they were one event. This gives the impression that the first day entered the temple He drove out the buyers and sellers as . Mark’s account, however, gives more detail to the events, revealing that there were actually two trips to the temple. In view of this, no to believe that there a discrepancy in the accounts.
