Central Idea: Jesus is zealous for true worship of God. Vss. 12-13 - After the wedding, Jesus spent a few days in Capernaum before going to Jerusalem for the Passover. This trip will reveal His ministry to the Jews there; His final trip to Jerusalem will result in a crucifixion. "The Jews" here refers to the ethnic people. Vss. 14-17 - Jesus' first recorded action is to cleanse the temple. It was filled with vendors selling sacrificial animals to those who did not bring anything with them. But Jesus turned their focus away from the sacrificial rites to the One to whom they sacrificed. The sacrifices were only acceptable as long as they were worshipping God with pure hearts (Cf. 1 Samuel 15:22, Psalm 51:16-17, Micah 6:6-8) Vss. 18-22 - The Jews (now probably a reference to the religious leaders, the temple authorities) demand a sign of Jesus' authority to do these things, but the sign is not what they expect. The sign is Jesus' resurrection, demonstrating His power over death, the curse, and thus the entire created order as well. Needless to say, their eyes were blinded and they did not understand. Vss. 23-25 - The result of this (and perhaps other signs) was that people believed on Him, but perhaps their belief was shallow, only wonderment. Jesus did not "believe" in them, or entrust Himself to them the way he did with his disciples at the Last Supper. God provided a series of witnesses to Jesus in chapter 1, but Jesus needed no witness about the people because He made them and knew everything about them.

John 2:12-25
NT

After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and his brothers and his disciples,
and they stayed there for a few days.
The Passover of the Jews was at hand,
and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
inference
In the temple he found those who were selling oxen and sheep and pigeons,
and the money-changers sitting there.
series
And making a whip of cords,
he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen.
And he poured out the coins of the money-changers
and overturned their tables.
And he told those who sold the pigeons,
"Take these things away;
do not make my Father's house a house of trade."

His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me."
So the Jews said to him, "What sign do you show us for doing these things?"
Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple,
and in three days I will raise it up."

progression
The Jews then said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple,
and will you raise it up in three days?"
But he was speaking about the temple of his body.
When therefore he was raised from the dead,
his disciples remembered that he had said this,
and they believed the Scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast,
many believed in his name
when they saw the signs that he was doing.
ground
But Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them,
because he knew all people
and needed no one to bear witness about man,
for he himself knew what was in man.
