The Temple Clearing
The Temple Clearing
John 2:13-22
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  March 30, 2014

When may all imagine this well-known narrative, the temple clearing, in different ways. But to gain a full appreciation for the event and its significance we must give attention to four areas which should inform our understanding any time we study the Word of God. This morning we will use these four areas of understanding as a template for exploring this important event in John’s gospel: (1)Historical Understanding; (2) Literary Understanding; (3) Theological Understanding; and (4) Practical Understanding.
