Jesus Cleanses the Temple(A)

15 (B)So they came to Jerusalem. Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold (C)doves. 16 And He would not allow anyone to carry wares through the temple. 17 Then He taught, saying to them, “Is it not written, (D)‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it a (E)‘den of thieves.’

18 And (F)the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because (G)all the people were astonished at His teaching. 19 When evening had come, He went out of the city.

47 And He (E)was teaching daily in the temple. But (F)the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people sought to destroy Him, 48 and were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to (G)hear Him.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple(A)

13 (B)Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 (C)And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers [a]doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make (D)My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” 17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, (E)“Zeal for Your house [b]has eaten Me up.”

18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, (F)“What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?”

19 Jesus answered and said to them, (G)“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”

21 But He was speaking (H)of the temple of His body. 22 Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, (I)His disciples remembered that He had said this [c]to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.
