135The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus6went up to Jerusalem.
147And He found in the templethose who were sellingoxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangersseated at their tables.
And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen ; and He poured out the coins of the moneychangers and overturned their tables ;
and to those who were selling8the doves He said, "Takethesethingsaway ; stopmaking9My Father'shouse a aplace of business."17
His 10disciplesremembered that it was written, "11ZEAL FOR YOUR HOUSE WILL CONSUME ME."
1812The Jewsthensaid to Him, "13Whatsign do You show us bas your authority for doingthesethings ?"
19Jesusanswered them, "14Destroythisctemple, and in threedays I will raise it up."2015The Jewsthensaid, "It took 16forty-sixyears to buildthisdtemple, and will You raise it up in threedays ?"
But He was speaking of 17the etemple of His body.
22Sowhen He was raised from the dead, His 18disciples19remembered that He saidthis ; and they believed20the Scripture and the wordwhichJesus had spoken.
23Nowwhen He was in Jerusalem at 21the Passover, during the feast, manybelieved in His name, 22observing His signswhich He was doing.
But Jesus, on His part, was not entrustingHimself to them, for 23He knewallmen,
and because He did not needanyone to testifyconcerningman, 24for He Himselfknewwhat was in man.
