“Jesus Cleanses the Temple”
This episode is recorded in all 4 gospels. We shouldn’t be surprised that Jesus came into the temple and made a ruckus. He was not just being a rabble rouser. He was rectifying the temple so as to rectify the people of Israel.
When pressed for a sign, Jesus said that he would tear the temple down and rebuild it in 3 days. He was talking, as John tells us, of the Temple of his body. He was saying that this old temple, which had served its purpose relatively well, would now give way to a new and definitive Temple. His own body, his won person, would be the place where divinity and humanity meet, and the place of right praise.
Many of the historical critics of the New Testament hold that this event, shocking, unprecedented, perverse; is what finally persuaded the leaders that Jesus merited execution.
Lent is a time of personal reform, a good time to pay attention to the anger that lurks in our hearts. We must find a way to express that anger in a way that leads to healing.
- Do you carry anger with you? 2) Why does anger clash with our image of Christ? 3) Can you appreciate a holy and hopeful anger?
