First Passover Cleansing the Temple
Interwoven Gospels

And the Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. And He found in the temple those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money-changers sitting there. And having made a whip of cords, He drove all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen, and He poured out the coins and overturned the tables of the money-changers; and to those who sold the doves, He said, "Take these things hence; make not the house of My Father a market-house." His disciples remembered that it is written, "The zeal of Thy house shall consume me."

The religious leaders therefore answered and said to Him, "What sign showest Thou to us, since Thou doest these things?"

Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." Then said the Jews, "Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt Thou raise it up in three days?'

But He spake of the temple of His body. When, therefore He was risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He spake this; and they believed the Scripture, and the word which Jesus said.

Now while He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name, when they saw His signs which He did. Nevertheless Jesus did not trust Himself to them, because He knew all men, and because He had no need that any one should testify about man, for He Himself knew what was in man.
