Jesus Cleanses the Temple Courts
February 16, 2018 • John 2:13-22 Matthew 21:12-17
Shortly after Jesus arrives in Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, he visits the Temple. The reality he encounters incites his anger. What he does next astonishes and infuriates the religious authorities: Jesus disrupts the existing Temple affairs and cleanses the Temple courts. This Lent, prepare your heart to remember Jesus Christ's death and resurrection by discovering how and why Jesus acts with such zeal and authority, the truths he teaches about himself in the process, and the impact his admonition then has on how we live our faith and how we regard our churches today.
