binoculars-1423841-639x855

 

Jesus was bringing into being the reality for which the Temple had been one of the great advance signposts: God’s sovereign and saving presence in the midst of His people. This was a time for looking forwards to the great things God was beginning to do, not backwards to the times when Israel had been punished for her failures and infidelities.

— N. T. Wright, Mark for Everyone, 25.
