Jesus Cleanses the Temple (John 2:13-25)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: God desires people who worship from their hearts.
In our bible story we learned:
1. God’s house is for worship alone.
2. The Jews demanded a sign.
3. Jesus could see the motive of their hearts.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Only after his resurrection did Jesus’ disciples understand what he was talking about when he told the Jews that he could rebuild the temple in three days (John 2:22). People hurled insults at Jesus during his crucifixion, mocking what he said about the temple (Matthew 27:39–40).
Jesus’ resurrection validates his ministry claims. His resurrection ultimately proves he is Lord over all, including life and death. The resurrection proves that Jesus was the Son of God and that his sacrificial death on the cross broke the curse of death and sin for all who put their faith in him (Romans 6:4; 8:11).
