Jesus Clears the Temple

March 16, 2006

Some questions I’m chewing on as I work with the text for Sunday:

How and why have we “domesticated” Jesus into a meek-n-mild savior?

To what extent did Jesus use violence in cleansing the temple?

Consider how some of our deepest religious impulses and places (in this story the Temple) lead us astray.

How might we avoid all forms of false religious security?

Consider the ways we “sanitize” the Jesus story.
