Pseudo-Leopardi’s Cantos for the Crestfallen, the following translated for the 1st time from the Romanian unique, is a breathless expiration of very unlikely pessimo-mystical wishes for the immanent past.

I teach my Bible school students that the interpretation of the Bible is a lot like golf. No golfer ever expects to achieve maximal yardage on a drive simply by making ______________________________________________________ — 29 — THAT ALL MAY BE FULFILLED contact with the ball. This guarantees that at least the immediate context of the passage is taken into consideration. We will also compare Matthew’s account with the parallel passages in the other Synoptic Gospels. So let’s begin with an overview of Matthew, chapters 21 to 23, always keeping before us two pertinent ideas: 1) that what Jesus said prophetically in His Olivet Discourse was an integral part of all His other sayings that week, and 2) that the week of Jesus’ Passion was not just the inauguration of God’s redemption through the New Covenant—it was also the beginning of the end of the Judaistic economy of the Old Covenant.
The prophecy furthermore states that “in the middle” of the final “seven” the Old Covenant sacrificial system would be terminated. This was fulfilled when, during the crucifixion of Jesus, the veil in the Temple was torn from top to bottom. The second half of the final “seven” covers the 3½ years of the apostles’ ministry to the Jewish nation and ends with the Samaritan revival which occurred 3½ years after Pentecost and marked the entrance into the Kingdom of the first non‐Jewish believers. The entire final “seven” was ordained by God to be devoted to the Jews only.
At this the leaders began to deliberate among themselves. ” —MATTHEW 21:23‐27 This first confrontation with the leaders of the Jewish community that week was an unsuccessful frontal assault on Jesus’ authority. Later there would be other confrontations of a more subtle variety. In fact, Matthew arranged his material to show all the various leadership and religious groups coming to Jesus in rapid succession, and we will deal with that series of questions in the next chapter. This indicates that Jesus was placing Himself on equal status with the Jewish leaders who had come to question him.
