    not cleansing...

    How many times did Jesus prophetically announce judgment upon the temple? When did he do it?

    John mentions a judgment early in his gospel, although that is not necessarily chronological but theological placement (perhaps). The easiest explanation I can come up with is that the Jesus tradition passed on a temple judgment and the evangelist used the occasion theologically to make a great doctrinal point. Therefore, I am leaning that Jesus only judged the temple once towards the end of his ministry thus giving the Jews a reason to kill Jesus. John mentions the temple judgment early to set up the theological point early in the gospel account that Jesus is the new temple, God's presence is amongst his people again, and it is his presence that is to be sought after (Jn 1:14; 2:19-21).
