Here is the story of the tragic loss of the presence of God in the hearts of those who continued lifelessly in their religious activities. We find Jesus at Passover chasing the money changers out of the Temple and declaring that the temple of His body will be destroyed and raised up in three days. This is a story about the temple of God and what it means. But why did Jesus act with such vehemence and violence? The answer to this question lies in the meaning of the Temple which is disclosed not only here in John 2:13-25, but also from Genesis to Revelation.
