John 2:13-25 CSB

13The Jewish Passover#Ex 12:11 was near, and so Jesus went up to Jerusalem.#Mt 23:37 14In the temple#Mt 21:12-13; Mk 11:15-17; Lk 19:45-46 he found people selling oxen, sheep, and doves, and he also found the money changers sitting there. 15After making a whip out of cords,#Ac 27:32 he drove everyone out of the temple with their sheep#Mt 7:15 and oxen. He also poured out the money changers’ coins and overturned the tables. 16He told those who were selling doves, “Get these things out of here! Stop turning my Father’s#Mt 5:16; 11:27; Jn 8:42 house#Lk 11:51; Jn 2:17 into a marketplace!” #2:16 Lit a house of business#Jr 7:11; Zch 14:21; Mal 3:1-3 17And his disciples remembered that it is written: Zeal#Nm 25:13 for your house will consume#Gl 5:15 me.#2:17Ps 69:9#Ps 69:9 18So the Jews replied to him, “What sign will you show us for doing these things?” 19Jesus answered, “Destroy this temple,#2:19 Or sanctuary, also in vv. 20,21#Lk 1:21 and I will raise it up in three days.”#Lk 9:22 20Therefore the Jews said, “This temple took forty-six years to build,#2:20 Or was built forty-six years ago and will you raise it up in three days?” #Mk 15:29 21But he was speaking about the temple of his body.#Mt 26:26; 27:52,58; Mk 14:22; 15:43; Lk 12:4; 22:19; 23:52,55; Jn 19:31,38,40; 20:12; 1Co 10:16; 11:23-26; Heb 10:5,10; 1Pt 2:24 22So when he was raised from the dead,#Mt 17:9; Rv 20:12 his disciples remembered that he had said this,#Jn 14:26 and they believed the Scripture#Mt 26:54; 2Pt 1:20 and the statement Jesus had made. 23While he was in Jerusalem#Mt 23:37 during the Passover Festival,#Jn 5:1 many believed in his name#Jn 10:25; 1Jn 3:23 when they saw the signs he was doing. 24Jesus, however, would not entrust himself to them, since he knew them all 25and because he did not need anyone to testify about man; for he himself knew what was in man.#Jr 17:10
