13 And the Passover of the Jews was near, and so Jesus ascended to Jerusalem.
14 And he found, sitting in the temple, sellers of oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers.
15 And when he had made something like a whip out of little cords, he drove them all out of the temple, including the sheep and the oxen. And he poured out the brass coins of the moneychangers, and he overturned their tables.
16 And to those who were selling doves, he said: "Take these things out of here, and do not make my Father's house into a house of commerce."
17 And truly, his disciples were reminded that it is written: "Zeal for your house consumes me."
18 Then the Jews responded and said to him, "What sign can you show to us, that you may do these things?"
19 Jesus responded and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
20 Then the Jews said, "This temple has been built up over forty-six years, and you will raise it up in three days?"
21 Yet he was speaking about the Temple of his body.
22 Therefore, when he had resurrected from the dead, his disciples were reminded that he had said this, and they believed in the Scriptures and in the word that Jesus had spoken.
1 Corinthians 3:9c-11, 16-17
you are God's construction.
10 According to the grace of God, which has been given to me, I have laid the foundation like a wise architect. But another builds upon it. So then, let each one be careful how he builds upon it.
11 For no one is able to lay any other foundation, in place of that which has been laid, which is Christ Jesus.
16 Do you not know that you are the Temple of God, and that the Spirit of God lives within you?
17 But if anyone violates the Temple of God, God will destroy him. For the Temple of God is holy, and you are that Temple.
