However, Jesus spoke of the religious leaders destroying His body when He said, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” John explained that when Jesus spoke about destroying “the temple,” He was “speaking of the temple of His body” (John 2:19-21). Three days after Jesus died on the cross, He raised up “the temple,” His body. Jesus did not change the law of Moses, but showed how current religious customs distorted the law of Moses. Jesus taught, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill” (Matthew 5:17).
