August 4, 2019 (John 2:13-22)
The Cleansing of the temple was where Jesus’ disciples recognized his zeal for his father’s house. In his removal of all the gimmicks, animal sales, and money changers, Jesus connects their activity in the temple to their worship. Jesus desire is for pure worship and ultimately that comes through the new temple he provides through his death and resurrection. But, it wasn’t until his resurrection when his disciples believed in what he was saying.
