Discussion for John 2:13

  • It 's no surprise that we see Jesus attending the Passover, he had been doing that since his youth. What is surprising is what will happen in the next verse. For many the Jewish faith was corrupt and mechanical. Scandal had over taken the process with the money changers cheating the people as they brought their different currencies and would have to exchange for the currency used in Jerusalem. Along with that the people often brought good sacrifices that were refused and would have to buy another at outrages price. This is the setting for what will happen
