In Jesus as the Fulfillment of the Temple in the Gospel of John, Paul M. Hoskins explores the connection between Jesus and the temple. Interpreters often associate John 1:14, 1:51, 2:18–22 and 4:20–24 with Jesus’ replacement of the temple. Based on these texts, one can already begin to see that he fulfills and replaces the temple in that he is the new locus of God’s presence, glory, revelation, and abundant provision for his people. In particular, John 2:18–22 clearly associates Jesus’ role as the Temple with his death and resurrection.
