This may be a bit of a stretch but I wonder if there is a connection between this text and the Prologue. The Word became flesh and the temple became human. Holiness is an interior quality rather than an exterior action. Authentic humanity as revealed in Jesus Christ is the true dwelling place, the temple, of God. Perhaps that is why this story appears earlier in John than in the synoptics. It needed to come first in order to open the way for all the "I am" statements.

Peace and zeal for holiness, Mike


That's an interesting thought, Mike. Particularly the way the Gospel is structured with a view to showing just what Incarnation means and leads to. Two thumbs up.
