While we were leaving the temple with Jesus, I stared at the size and how majestic it was. I said to him, "Look, Teacher! What massive stones! What magnificent buildings!" "Do you see all these things?" he asked. "Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down." Confused, I looked at the others. What did Jesus mean by that?
When we arrived back in Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts. He began to teach in the Court of the Gentiles, where he had previously thrown out the money changers. I looked around, chuckling to myself because there wasn't one in sight. I did see the chief priests and elders approaching. "Jesus." I said.
Continuing on Jesus led us straight towards the temple. Jesus entered the temple courts, looking around at the tables set up, and walked up to the nearest one. The man seated looked up at Jesus.
Note: This series is written as a first-person narrative to present Jesus in the context he walked in with the unknown disciple that narrates introducing my thoughts and sparking more ideas with his questions. Enjoy.
