Naves Topical Bible References John 2:13-25

13 Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 
14 And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the moneychangers doing business. 
15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money and overturned the tables.
16 And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" 
17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up." 
18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, "What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?" 
19 Jesus answered and said to them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 
20 Then the Jews said, "It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?" 
21 But He was speaking of the temple of His body. 
22 Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said. 
23 Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the signs which He did. 
24 But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all men, 
25 and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man.

Matt 21:12-17

12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.'" 
14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. 
15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant 
16 and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?" 
17 Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there.

Mark 11:15-19

15 So they came to Jerusalem. And Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 
16 And He would not allow anyone to carry wares through the temple. 
17 Then He taught, saying to them, "Is it not written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations'? But you have made it a 'den of thieves.' " 
18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people were astonished at His teaching. 
19 When evening had come, He went out of the city.

Isa 56:7-8

7 Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices Will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations." 
8 The Lord GOD, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, "Yet I will gather to him Others besides those who are gathered to him."

John 4:19-26

19 The woman said to Him, "Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. 
20 Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship." 
21 Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. 
22 You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 
23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. 
24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." 
25 The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things." 
26 Jesus said to her, "I who speak to you am He."

John 7:37-53

37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 
38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. 
40 Therefore many from the crowd, when they heard this saying, said, "Truly this is the Prophet."
41 Others said, "This is the Christ." But some said, "Will the Christ come out of Galilee? 
42 Has not the Scripture said that the Christ comes from the seed of David and from the town of Bethlehem, where David was?" 
43 So there was a division among the people because of Him. 
44 Now some of them wanted to take Him, but no one laid hands on Him. 
45 Then the officers came to the chief priests and Pharisees, who said to them, "Why have you not brought Him?" 
46 The officers answered, "No man ever spoke like this Man!" 
47 Then the Pharisees answered them, "Are you also deceived? 
48 Have any of the rulers or the Pharisees believed in Him? 
49 But this crowd that does not know the law is accursed." 
50 Nicodemus (he who came to Jesus by night, being one of them) said to them, 
51 Does our law judge a man before it hears him and knows what he is doing?" 
52 They answered and said to him, "Are you also from Galilee? Search and look, for no prophet has arisen out of Galilee." 
53 And everyone went to his own house.

John 8:1-12

1 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 
2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 
3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 
4 they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 
5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?" 
6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear. 
7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first." 
8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 
9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?" 
11 She said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more." 
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life."

John 8:20

20 These words Jesus spoke in the treasury, as He taught in the temple; and no one laid hands on Him, for His hour had not yet come.

John 10:22-34

22 Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. 
23 And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch. 
24 Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, "How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly." 
25 Jesus answered them, "I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father's name, they bear witness of Me. 
26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. 
27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 
28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 
29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father's hand. 
30 I and My Father are one." 
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 
32 Jesus answered them, "Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?" 
33 The Jews answered Him, saying, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God."

Matt 24:1-2

1 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. 
2 And Jesus said to them, "Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down."

The Court of the Gentiles

Gal 4:4 "But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law"

The Court of the Gentiles was the outermost court in the Jerusalem Temple during the time of Jesus. No gentile or non-Jew could proceed any further into the inner temple areas, and even Roman citizenship did not protect a Gentile who intruded into prohibited areas.
