Jesus Cleanses the Temple

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God desires people who worship from their hearts

Key Verse:
“For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified”
Romans 10:10a

(Open the bible and read to your child Matthew 3:13-17) Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. However, Jesus did not sin, so there was no need for him to be baptized for the forgiveness of sins. Jesus wanted to identify with us. He wanted to fulfill all righteousness. We also see the trinity show up for this event. The Father speaks and says, “This is my Son, in whom I am well pleased. The Son is there getting baptized, and the spirit descended in the form of a dove. This marked the beginning of Jesus’ ministry.

The Jesus Connection:
How does today’s Bible story fit into God’s greater plan of redemption?
Only after his resurrection did Jesus’ disciples understand what he was talking about when he told the Jews that he could rebuild the temple in three days (John 2:22). People hurled insults at Jesus during his crucifixion, mocking what he said about the temple (Matthew 27:39–40).
Jesus’ resurrection validates his ministry claims. His resurrection ultimately proves he is Lord over all, including life and death. The resurrection proves that Jesus was the Son of God and that his sacrificial death on the cross broke the curse of death and sin for all who put their faith in him (Romans 6:4; 8:11).
