Catch-up Friday

Use today (and the weekend) to catch up on any readings you might have missed.

For those who are up to date, we’re about to look at Jesus’ cleansing of the temple in John’s Gospel (2:13-22). The reason Jesus cleansed the temple is a matter of debate, which we’ll talk about on Monday. In preparation for that, read the other three Gospels’ accounts, and have a think about why Jesus cleansed the temple, according to the other three Gospel authors.

Mark 11:12-21

Matt 21:12-17

Luke 19:45-57

(What part of Jesus’ reason for cleansing the temple is missing from Matthew and Luke account, but present in Mark? Does that make a difference?)
