Matt 21:12-16 Take a moment to observe the beautiful progression in these verses. First, Jesus cleansed the temple, causing it to become a house of putity (v12). Then he pronounced that it would be called a house of prayer (v13). Next teh Temple was transformed into a house of power as the blind and lame came to him and he healed them there (v14). And finally the temple became a house of perfected praise (v16).
