Third Sunday of LentJohn 2:13-25
The gospel today is the story of the money changers desecrating the temple of God and Jesus’ reaction to this. We witness in this story the words of scripture that are recalled by the disciples of Jesus: “Zeal for your house will consume me.” And “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.”
These two references within one gospel reading point to the authenticity of Scripture being truly the Word of God. Too often we do not fully reverence Scripture for the gift we have been given. Let us try this week to remember God’s word is proclaimed in each reading we hear.
