John 2:13–25

13 And the Jews’ ppassover was at hand, and Jesus qwent up to Jerusalem, 14 rAnd found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when he had made a scourge of ssmall cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not tmy Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, uThe zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

18 Then answered vthe Jews and said unto him, wWhat sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, xDestroy ythis temple, and in three days zI will raise it up. 20 Then said vthe Jews, Forty and six years awas this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of bthe temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, chis disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed dthe scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. 23 Now when he was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name, when they saw ethe miracles which he did. 24 But Jesus did not commit himself unto them, because he knew all men, 25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for fhe knew what was in man.
