When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” 17 His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.” (John 2:13-17
Questions for Reflection
Fishing is an enterprise that often requires the patience of Job. Why do you think Jesus initially suggested that he would make the disciples “fishers of human beings”? Which is easier, catching fish or hooking people?
I n this narrative we see again Peter the impulsive and emotional one, and the Beloved Disciple, the perceptive one, as at the garden tomb. How much do you think pure human personality affects one’s relationship with the Lord?
Why do you think Jesus called the disciples “lads” or even “little children”?
