John 2:12-22 - The Lord Calls His People to Come and Worship Him
A Coggle Diagram about Reason for Jesus Response, Righteous Anger (Other examples , This Holy Anger is not against a personal affront, but against a heart that is flippant attitude toward worship and When is my anger righteous anger?), Jesus' response (Actions, What we see and What we don't see), Possible outline (The Lord Calls His People to Come and Worship Him, In Purity and Through His Son), Jesus came to the temple, Jesus' response is anger, Point 2 (The Lord is the temple- temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. Rev 21:22 and Hebrews 10:1 - it is a shadow of the greater thing to come), The Passover was at hand, This was his first public ministry - he cleansed the temple at the beginning and end, Jesus sees all of this, selling sacrificial animals, money changing, and He sees that they have totally polluted His Father’s house. Their hearts are the same as the hearts of the people to whom Isaiah wrote, to whom Amos wrote. Their hearts are like Psalm 51:16 to 19, you can read that at your own leisure. They’re irreverent. Should have been a place of repentance, a place of reverence, a place of humility, a place of worship, a place of praise; it’s a chaotic marketplace—abusive commerce and corruption marked that place. Nothing...say that advisedly...nothing enraged Jesus with holy anger and fury like irreverence. And He did His most severe action in these two incidents in His life. All the rest of the time it was compassion and mercy. Here it was divine fury, divine fury. These are the most severe things Jesus did in His entire life and they were done against hypocritical worship.
