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)— the fig tree cursed by , before or the temple cleansed?

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

: cursed the fig tree on His way to the temple as Mark said, but this does not mean Matthew’s account mistaken. Christ made two trips to the temple, and cursed the fig tree on His trip.

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