Cleansing and Lifting Up

Jesus cleansed His temple of spiritual hypocrisy, fruitlessness, and corruption, but also offered Himself up on the cross in order that He might cleanse a people for Himself from all the peoples of the world. In part 3 of The Passion Week, Pastor Dan Cox reads from Matthew 21:12-13, 18-19a, Mark 11:12-18, Luke 19:45-46, and John 12:20-36.
