Bible: John 2:13-22

2:13 Now the Jewish feast of Passover 1  was near, so Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2 

2:14 3 

He found in the temple courts 4  those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers sitting at tables. 5  2:15 So he made a whip of cords 6  and drove them all out of the temple courts, 7  with the sheep and the oxen. He scattered the coins of the money changers 8  and overturned their tables. 2:16 To those who sold the doves he said, “Take these things away from here! Do not make 9  my Father’s house a marketplace! 10  2:17 His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal 11  for your house will devour me.” 12 

2:18 So then the Jewish leaders 13  responded, 14 What sign can you show us, since you are doing these things? 15  2:19 Jesus replied, 16 Destroy 17  this temple and in three days I will raise it up again.” 2:20 Then the Jewish leaders 18  said to him, “This temple has been under construction 19  for forty-six years, 20  and are you going to raise it up in three days? 2:21 But Jesus 21  was speaking about the temple of his body. 22  2:22 So after he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the scripture 23  and the saying 24  that Jesus had spoken.
