TODAY'S GOSPE: NOV. 9: JOHN 2: 13 - 22

John 2: 13 - 22
13The Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.14In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons, and the money-changers at their business.15And making a whip of cords, he drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.16And he told those who sold the pigeons, "Take these things away; you shall not make my Father's house a house of trade."17His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for thy house will consume me."18The Jews then said to him, "What sign have you to show us for doing this?"19Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."20The Jews then said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?"21But he spoke of the temple of his body.22When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.
