View In My Bible
12 After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and 1his brothersa and his disciples, and they stayed there for a few days.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

13 2The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus 3went up to Jerusalem. 14 4In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers sitting there. 15 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. 16 And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; do not make 5my Father's house a house of trade." 17 His disciples remembered that it was written, 6"Zeal for your house will consume me." 18 So the Jews said to him, 7"What sign do you show us for doing these things?" 19 Jesus answered them, 8"Destroy this temple, and in three days 9I will raise it up." 20 The Jews then 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 about 10the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, 11his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed 12the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

Jesus Knows What Is in Man

23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name 13when they saw the signs that he was doing. 24 But Jesus 14on his part did not entrust himself to them, because 15he knew all people 25 and needed no one to bear witness about man, for 16he himself knew what was in man.
