Commentary on the Gospel of
Jesus was referring to his body when he spoke about the destruction and raising again of the temple. The same reference can be made when he cleansed the Temple in order to dedicate it to the service of God. With the risen Jesus, that temple refers not only to his risen body, but to the body of Christ—the Church. More than our church buildings, we as a Christian community are the temple of God, body of Christ. And Jesus comes again and asks us to make this temple fit for God.
