Zeal for My Father’s House has eaten me up! John 2:17, Mark 11:17 Jesus says: My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations Mark 11:17 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” 17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, “Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.” John 2 Jesus condemns the Fig Tree representing the fruitless & faithless Temple system (Mk.11:15-19) 15 And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 16 And he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. Mark 11 Court of the Gentiles The Court of the Gentiles in the first century Jerusalem temple was about 35 acres in size. It was the largest of the courts and surrounded the entire temple area. The Court of the Gentiles was the outer court of the temple where non-Jews could pray to Yahweh, the God of Israel. It was also where Jesus taught, sacrificial animals were sold, and the “cleansing of the temple” incident took place. Nylund, J. H. (2016). Court of the Gentiles. In J. D. Barry, D. Bomar, D. R. Brown, R. Klippenstein, D. Mangum, C. Sinclair Wolcott, … W. Widder (Eds.), The Lexham Bible Dictionary. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press. • Jesus condemns the fruitless and faithless Temple system v. 15-19 17 And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.” 18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it and were seeking a way to destroy him, for they feared him, because all the crowd was astonished at his teaching. Jesus Sacrifices Himself to Honor The Father’s House of Prayer Matthew 27:51 And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. Matthew 27:51 14 Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4 The Holy Spirit delivers His House of Prayer in us Acts 2 Acts 2 ESV 2 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. Are We a House of Prayer? Are You a House of Prayer? Mark 11:17 42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. Acts 2 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. Acts 2 Zeal for My Father’s House has eaten me up! John 2:17, Mark 11:17
