2. Life's Purpose -- To Build the House of God
a. Christ Cleansing the Temple
12 After this He went down to Capernaum, He and His mother and His brothers and His disciples; and they remained there not many days.
13 And the aPassover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
14 And aHe found in the 1btemple those selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers sitting there.
15 And 1having made a whip out of 2cords, He drove them all out of the temple, as well as the sheep and the oxen, and He poured out the money of the moneychangers and overturned their tables.
16 And to those who were selling the doves He said, Take these things away from here; do not make aMy Father's house a house of merchandise.
17 His disciples remembered that it was written, a"The zeal of Your house shall devour Me.''
