Jesus went to a church one day.

He saw people selling things in the church.

They were selling sheep and pigeons and other things.

Jesus was not pleased.


“Take these things out of God’s house”, he said.


Jesus chased all the animals out.

He tipped over all the tables.

“Stop making this church into a market-place”, Jesus said.




John 2:13-16      No. 2.



Jesus wants people to go to

church to sing and pray and learn about God.
