This year we are covering the four Gospel Accounts together in chronological order.
In the previous post, we covered John 2:1-12. Here was the conclusion:
Jesus' administrated His first miracle because He had yet to begin His PUBLIC Ministry.
"13 And the passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem."
(Jesus went to Jerusalem for the passover which was the First Feast of God. Leviticus covered The Seven Feasts of God. These feasts not only represented spiritual principles and physical prophetic events...these feasts marked time during the year. This was the First Feast of the year...)
"14 And he found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
15 and he made a scourge of cords, and cast all out of the temple, both the sheep and the oxen; and he poured out the changers' money, and overthrew their tables;
16 and to them that sold the doves he said, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house a house of merchandise."
(Jesus purified the temple...which was the First Act of His Public Ministry. During passover, the First Feast of the year, Jesus PUBLICLY cleared out the temple of those who were making money...those who were personally benefiting at the expense of others.)
"17 His disciples remembered that it was written, Zeal for thy house shall eat me up."
(The disciples that were with Jesus remembered that it was written in Psalms 69:9:
"9 For the zeal of thy house hath eaten me up; And the reproaches of them that reproach thee are fallen upon me.")
Jesus began His Public Ministry in Jerusalem during passover when He cleared the temple of those who were making money at the expense of others.
