The New Temple

One day Jesus marched into the temple and drove everyone out and overturned the tables.
The Jewish leaders responded, “what sign can you show us that proves your authority to do such a thing?”
Jesus answered, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it again.”
This confused the Jews, but they didn’t understand that he was talking about his body. That building was nothing more than a shadow of the real temple.
As Paul said, God does not live in temples made by hands. The real temple is the body of Christ. That is where God dwells.
And here is the good news, you became a member of his body the moment you believed. You yourselves are God's temple and God's Spirit dwells in your midst.
