Mark 14:58

14:58 I will destroy this temple that is made with hands. The first three (Synoptic) Gospels do not record Jesus saying this. However, it is found in John’s account of the temple cleansing (John 2:19). This would support the probability that Christ cleansed the temple twice, since the lapse of three years would help explain the false witnesses’ garbled version.
