Today's Gospel reading came from John 2. Jesus cleansed the temple by driving out all those who sold oxen, sheep, and doves, as well as the money-changers out of the temple area. The Jews asked him what sign he could show for doing this. Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up." He was speaking about the temple of his Body, for he did rise from the dead on the third day later. The Lord is not only the temple of God, he is God. When we also become the temple of God, we can be sure he will also raise us up too.
