Day 5: John 2:13-25
Stories: The Sign of the Messiah (clearing the temple)
1) Same as the other gospels’ later cleansing, or another one early in His ministry?
2) “would not entrust himself to them…” – Jesus did not minister to people because they liked him, but because His Father had called Him to do it and knew His purpose. He drew His energy and purpose from God, not people – this is why so many ministers fizzle out because they get into the rut of working for people instead of for God.
