18 Then the Jews said to him, "What sign [of God's authority] can you show us, since you do these things?"
19 And Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up."
20 Then the Jews replied, "It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will you raise it up in three days?"
21 But he spoke of the temple of his body. [As Jesus' body was the temple of the living God, so is the body of a purified believer the temple of the living God: Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 1 Cor 3:16.]
|1 Corinthians 3:16,6:19 |
16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
19 What? Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own.
