John Chapter Two - Ruminations

This is nothing more than a brain dump, immediately after reading the selection. I think it might have been written purely for the last two lines.

Purposefully uninvolved,
But asked into His first exposure
That went unnoticed and unproclaimed,
He took up His mantle,
Consumed with zeal
And cleansed, through destruction
And lashes, the house of His Father.
Asked for authority
He told the truth but, misunderstood,
Was mocked.
There is more than one kind of temple;
To each their own.

I think this is my favorite so far -- and not just the last two lines, either!
