40 And saying, "You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself. If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross." [When Jesus made that statement, the "temple" was referring to His body.]

42 "He saved others, but he cannot save himself. If he is the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
