Evanghelia zilei

In vremea aceea Iisus S'a coborat in Capernaum, El, precum si mama Sa si fratii Sai si ucenicii Sai; si n'au ramas acolo multe zile. Si Pastile Iudeilor erau aproape si Iisus S'a suit la Ierusalim. Si a gasit sezand in templu pe cei ce vindeau boi si oi si porumbei si pe schimbatorii de bani. Si facand un bici de streanguri, i-a scos pe toti afara din templu, si oile, si boii, iar schimbatorilor le-a varsat banii si le-a rasturnat mesele; si celor care vindeau porumbei le-a zis: „Luati acestea de aici! Nu faceti casa Tatalui Meu casa de negutatorie!“ Si ucenicii Sai si-au adus aminte ca este scris: Ravna casei Tale m'a mancat. Dar I-au raspuns Iudeii, zicand: „De vreme ce tu faci acestea, ce semn ne arati?“ Iisus le-a raspuns si le-a zis: „Daramati templul acesta si'n trei zile il voi ridica“. Si au zis Iudeii: „In patruzeci si sase de ani s'a zidit templul acesta! Si tu il vei ridica in trei zile?...“. Dar El le vorbea de templul trupului Sau. Deci, cand a inviat din morti, ucenicii Sai si-au adus aminte ca El zisese aceasta si au crezut Scripturii si cuvantului pe care-l spusese Iisus. (Ioan 2, 12-22)

The Daily Gospel

At that time Jesus went down to Capernaum with his mother and brothers and his disciples. There they stayed for a few days. When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!” His disciples remembered that it is written: “Zeal for your house will consume me.” The Jews then responded to him, “What sign can you show us to prove your authority to do all this?” Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?” But the temple he had spoken of was his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken. (John 2:12-22)
