John 2:13-25, NLT
Jesus Clears the Temple
13It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration, so Jesus went to Jerusalem.
17Then his disciples remembered this prophecy from the Scriptures: “Passion for God’s house will consume me.”*2:17 Or “Concern for God’s house will be my undoing.” Ps 69:9.
18But the Jewish leaders demanded, “What are you doing? If God gave you authority to do this, show us a miraculous sign to prove it.”
19“All right,” Jesus replied. “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
20“What!” they exclaimed. “It has taken forty-six years to build this Temple, and you can rebuild it in three days?”
Jesus and Nicodemus
23Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him.
