Destroy This Temple

Jesus said to them, "destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up". The Jewish leaders were very confused about His statement and said to Him, "It has taken forty- six years to build this Temple, and you will raise it up in three days?" They had no idea that he was referring to the Temple of His body, which they would eventually hand over to the Romans to be put to death. But Jesus made the bold statement that He would "raise it up in three days," and this was to be their their sign that they requested. His disciples remembered this whole event and the Words that Jesus said to them: "Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said." - John 2:22
