john 2 13 25
John 2:13-25
  • 13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
  • 14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
  • 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.
john 2 13 251
John 2:13-25
  • 16 To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!"
  • 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
  • 18 Then the Jews demanded of him, "What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?"
  • 19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
john 2 13 252
John 2:13-25
  • 20 The Jews replied, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?"
  • 21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
  • 22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
john 2 13 253
John 2:13-25
  • 23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in his name.
  • 24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
  • 25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.

1 jesus zeal for true worship 13 17
1 – Jesus’ Zeal for True Worship (13-17)
  • Zeal = a boiling pot. Why was Jesus so angry?
  • Peter Maiden: “Don’t give up on the church. It’s one of God’s most brilliant ideas.”
  • ACCESS to God for Sinners was being denied. Profit came first.
luther said
Luther said:
  • “Zeal is love made angry.”
2 jesus zeal for his own mission 17
2 – Jesus’ Zeal for His Own Mission (17)
  • It takes a change to the FUTURE tense to understand Jesus’ mission from Psalm 69:9
  • "Zeal for your house will consume me."
  • First suffering, then death, and then… what? What is the mission?
2 jesus zeal for his own mission 171
2 – Jesus’ Zeal for His Own Mission (17)
  • Note well: Jesus’ CORE MISSION (the cross) was opposed…
  • By the religious, and by the when-the-going-is-easy followers…
  • Christ’s mission is STILL opposed today, and in much the same ways.
3 jesus zeal for the true temple 18 22
3 – Jesus’ Zeal for the True Temple (18-22)
  • Why did Jesus ignore a 46 year old gleaming-white temple? (Started in 20 BC, it took thousands of masons until 64 AD to complete the building project).
  • What has the last line in Zechariah’s prophecy to teach us?
zechariah 14 21
Zechariah 14:21
  • No Canaanites in the temple please!
  • That’s the NIV and AV, but in the ESV:“And there shall no longer be a trader in the house of the LORD of hosts on that day.”
  • Do we accept Jesus as our true temple? Is he our one and only way to know and serve God?
everyone is zealous
EVERYONE IS ZEALOUS!
  • Does Jesus offend your zeal, or inspire your zeal?
  • Alexander Shields:“…a pint of hope, three pints of faith, and nine pints of hot, hot, hot burning zeal.”
our response to god s word 1 thessalonians 5 23 24
OUR RESPONSE TO GOD’S WORD (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24)
  • Minister: May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through.
  • People: The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.
our response to god s word 1 thessalonians 5 23 241
OUR RESPONSE TO GOD’S WORD (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24)
  • Minister: May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • People: The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.
psalm 72 17 19 p 314
Psalm 72:17-19 (p. 314)

17 His name for ever shall endure;

last like the sun it shall:

Men shall be blessed in him, and blessed

all nations shall him call.

psalm 72 17 19 2 3
Psalm 72:17-19 (2/3)

18 Now blessèd be the LORD our God,

the God of Israel,

For he alone doth wondrous works,

in glory that excel.

psalm 72 17 19 3 3
Psalm 72:17-19 (3/3)

19 And blessèd be his glorious name

to all eternity:

The whole earth let his glory fill.

Amen, so let it be.
