  1. A Passover to Remember (2:12-22)

  2. JOHN 2:12 • After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and his brothers and his disciples, and they stayed there for a few days

  3. JOHN 2:13-14 • The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there

  4. Shekel of Tyre

  5. JOHN 2:15-16 • And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make my Father's house a house of trade."

  6. Mark 14:57-58 • And some stood up and bore false witness against him, saying, "We heard him say, 'I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another, not made with hands.'"

  7. Mark 15:29-30 • And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, "Aha! You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself, and come down from the cross!"

  8. JOHN 2:17 • His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me."

  9. RC Sproul Imagine if you went to church on a Sunday morning and went in the sanctuary to pray, but you couldn’t focus your thoughts because of the loud and persistent bleating of sheep and goats. That’s what was going on in the temple. The sacred grounds that had been set apart for worship had become chaotic. Yes, people’s needs were being met. I’m sure the temple authorities were saying, “We’re just trying to be relevant; we’re being seeker-sensitive for those who can’t bring their lambs from home and who need their money exchanged.” But in their efforts to make these procedures easy and convenient for the people, they had impacted the people’s ability to worship

  10. JOHN 5:17-18 • But Jesus answered them, "My Father is working until now, and I am working." This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God

  11. JOHN 2:18-22 • So the Jews said to him, "What sign do you show us for doing these things?" Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." The Jews then said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?" But he was speaking about the temple of his body. When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken

  12. Swindoll Jesus didn’t waste His words on people who didn’t want to hear. ..He didn’t speak in order to convince the skeptic or sway the dissenter. His words were intended to divide His audience into two groups: receptive hearts and hard hearts. He understood that hearing Him is not an intellectual process, but a crisis of the will. Several times throughout the story when Jesus says something cryptic, some people think they understand Him and turn away, while others admit their confusion and draw nearer

  13. JOHN 2:18-22 • So the Jews said to him, "What sign do you show us for doing these things?" Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." The Jews then said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?" But he was speaking about the temple of his body. When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken

  14. What Does John Want Us To See? • Jesus’ Cares About How We Worship • Jesus’ Divine Power • Jesus’ Divine Omniscience • Jesus’ Mission Previewed

  15. 1 JOHN 1:7 • But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.
