Easter 2012: Freed to Worship Through the New Temple

Jesus is alive and risen! We worship a risen King who has become the way for us to be reconciled to God. Through faith in Jesus the Christ, we are reconciled to God, adopted into the family of God and united with Him forever.

Discussion Questions

  • What was the role of the temple?
  • Why was Jesus so upset at the money changers and those selling animals?
  • What does Jesus mean when he says his body is a temple?
  • In what ways does Jesus fulfill the role of the temple? Why is there no need of one today?
  • What happened to the temple upon his death? (see Matthew 27:51-54) Why is this significant?
