Jesus drove money changers, and others, doing business in the temple out of it. The Jews asked why He did such things, wanting a sign that showed He had the authority to do those things. He told them to destroy the temple, and He would raise it in three days. They balked at His promise to do such a thing. However, John alerted us,

But He was speaking of the temple of His body (John 2.21). 

Jesus was the true temple of God that had entered the world. They were not aware of this magnificent truth yet, and most of them never would come to see it, but they would destroy His body, or kill Him, and He did raise Himself from the dead, although they still did not recognize His true identity.


  • Do you realize that the Son of God truly lived in a body like ours?
  • How can this be?
