Jesus the Disruptor

Passage: John 2:13-22, Mark 11:15-17, John 10:10, Ephesians 4:11-12

Jesus enters the temple court, confronts the money changers, makes a whip out of cords, and drives out the animals. In this prophetic action, Jesus disrupts the old system of death and sacrifice, and signals the new system of love and mercy is on its way. Jesus is the final sacrifice. As followers of Jesus we must never settle for dead religion but learn to live daily in the abundance of God’s life-giving, self-giving love.
