Matthew 21:12-14 (ESV)
12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.” 14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them.

Holy Week Meditations 1

I’m going to try post a short video each day this week.  The quality isn’t the greatest and I haven’t spent ages tryign to edit it or make a polished performance. However, I do hope it helps some of you reflect on Easter Week.

Here is the full quote from Maccabees used in my ‘ramblings’

 01Now Maccabaeus and his followers, under the leadership of the Lord, recaptured the temple and the city, 2and pulled down the altars erected by the aliens in the market-place, as well as the sacred inclosures. 3After cleansing the sanctuary, they erected another altar of sacrifice, and striking fire out of flints they offered sacrifices after a lapse of two years, with incense, lamps, and the presentation of the shew-bread. 4This done, they fell prostrate before the Lord with entreaties that they might never again incur such disasters, but that, if ever they should sin, he would chasten them with forbearance, instead of handing them over to blasphemous and barbarous pagans. 5Now it so happened that the cleansing of the sanctuary took place on the very day on which it had been profaned by aliens, on the twenty-fifth day of the same month, which is Chislev. 6And they celebrated it for eight days with gladness like a feast of tabernacles, remembering how, not long before, during the feast of tabernacles they had been wandering like wild beasts in the mountains and the caves. 7So, bearing wands wreathed with leaves and fair boughs and palms, they offered hymns of praise to him who had prospered the cleansing of his own place, 8and also passed a public order and decree that all the Jewish nation should keep these ten days every year.
