  • Pure Worship
  • Pure Fellowship
  • Pure Faith  

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read John 2:13-25. Why does Jesus drive the animal sales and money-changers out of the temple? Consider Psalm 69:9, Isaiah 56:7, and Jeremiah 7:9-11.
  2. What is zeal? Is it good for Christians to be zealous? For what? How do you measure zeal? How do you grow zeal?
  3. How does Jesus’ statement in verse 19 answer the question of verse 18? How does his death and resurrection give him authority over the temple, the place of worship?
  4. What are the implications of the truth that Jesus is the new temple?
  5. Why does Jesus not entrust himself to them? What does he know about man? How does this impact us? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

Titus 2:14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. (ESV)
