Jesus left His favorite stomping grounds,
the country side and villages to teach in enemy territory:
The Jewish Temple.
Here the religious leaders were in charge
and only approved teachers were allowed.
Jesus ignored these conventions and taught key truths,
especially about Himself.
His action of going onto the home territory of the religious leaders
and challenging their authority boiled into a major confrontation.
a “Temple Smack Down”, if you will. The Pharisees and
Sadducees tag teamed Jesus and He held them off
and turned the tables on them.
What do we learn about Jesus in this confrontation?
Come discover what we can learn from
His core teachings in hostile territory.
