Read the sermon text: John 2:13-25

Read the sermon summary: In this passage Jesus does and says some shocking things related to the temple in Jerusalem. In particular, we notice one action (driving money changers out of the temple) and two statements. First, Jesus calls the temple “my Father’s house.” Second, he identifies his body with the temple when he says, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.” What does this passage tell us about Jesus? Why do you think the author includes this story at this particular point in the book? What clues does the context give us about the meaning of this passage? In verse 22 it says that Jesus’ disciples “believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.” What Scripture do you think the author is speaking of?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
In the dawning of the King
He the theme of heaven's praises
Robed in frail humanity
In our longing in our darkness
Now the light of life has come
Look to Christ who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us
 
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
He the perfect Son of Man
In His living in His suff'ring
Never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam
Come to save the hell-bound man
Christ the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law in Him we stand
 
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners
Hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption
See the Father's plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory
Grace unmeasured love untold
 
Come behold the wondrous myst'ry
Slain by death the God of life
But no grave could e'er restrain Him
Praise the Lord He is alive
What a foretaste of deliv'rance
How unwavering our hope
Christ in power resurrected
As we will be when He comes
