Jesus Doesn't Tolerate Hypocrisy

In this sermon, Jesus enters into Jerusalem, making known that He is indeed the King of kings. But He finds lots of hypocrisy, false religion, and outer show. He turns over the tables in the Temple and curses a fig tree. How do these two relate as He shows His disdain for phony religion? When we are depending on and hiding behind our own goodness, we may look like a good, healthy fig tree, but inside, we are dying. God despises this kind of outer hypocrisy.
