The Word as a Wordle

Here is  a Wordle of next Sunday's Gospel reading from John 2:13:22.

I am really struck how at the heart of this quite violent exchange, lies important truths that the Wordle reveals:

1.  What does the Temple, as a theological concept, reveal to us as Christians?

2.  What is the nature of the relationship between Jesus, the Temple and those for whom the Temple was important, the Jews?

Other things to do with how the Temple was used and those who gathered there, namely those who sold items in the Temple courts, are important not at the heart of this exchange. Who and what is the Temple for?
