Bible Quote 2:12 After this he went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days.
2:13 When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2:14 In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money.
2:15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables.

2:16 To those who sold doves he said, "Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father's house into a market!"
2:17 His disciples remembered that it is written: "Zeal for your house will consume me."
2:18 Then the Jews demanded of him, "What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?"
2:19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days."
2:20 The Jews replied, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?"

2:21 But the temple he had spoken of was his body.
2:22 After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
2:23 Now while he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many people saw the miraculous signs he was doing and believed in his name.
2:24 But Jesus would not entrust himself to them, for he knew all men.
2:25 He did not need man's testimony about man, for he knew what was in a man.
