"Spiritual House Cleaning" (1 Corinthians 1:18-25, John 2:13-22)Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, March 4, 2018
Part of the Lent series, preached at a Lent service
“When Jesus entered the temple that day he found a faith that was stale, downright dirty. People were taking advantage of others and ritual had become more important than the condition of the heart. What Jesus did, I believe, was challenge a smug, hypocritical religious system that desperately needed to change. Therefore, a little demolition was necessary, not to mention an all-out assault to clean house.” Thus, Jesus put together a whip out of strips of leather and chased them out of the Temple, stampeding the sheep and cattle, upending the tables of the loan sharks, spilling coins left and right.
