Jesus was hungry (Mt 21:18-21:18)

“In the morning,

When Jesus returned

To the city,

He was hungry.”

 

Πρωῒ δὲ ἐπαναγαγὼν εἰς τὴν πόλιν ἐπείνασεν.

 

This story about Jesus being hungry in the morning can be found in Mark, chapter 11:12, almost word for word.  In the morning (Πρωῒ δὲ), when Jesus returned from Bethany to the city of Jerusalem (ἐπαναγαγὼν εἰς τὴν πόλιν), he was hungry (ἐπείνασεν).  This simple statement starts an interesting story, but also shows an interesting human trait of Jesus.  Like many other humans, he was hungry in the morning.
