But the temple he had spoken of was his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the Scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.
The Messiah claimed his body was a Temple, to be rebuild in three days. This was the miracle He was ready to offer, and dod execute in Jerusalem. When jesus rose from the dead after three days, they realized that the Son of God had spoken the truth. He was mentioned in the scriptures, and they believed the scriptures, his explanations and teachings.
