The temple of Jesus’ body was raised after being destroyed three days earlier. This is one additional “sign” that John placed in his gospel, written to all generations and cultures. “These (signs) are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God…” (John 20:31, NIV- parenthetical word added based on vs. 30). I urge you today to place your faith in God’s provision for the sin of mankind. -Teresa
John 2:18-22 (ESV)
18 So the Jews said to him, “What sign do you show us for doing these things?” 19 Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” 20 The Jews then said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple,[c] and will you raise it up in three days?” 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this, and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.
