     As Jesus saw the temple for the first time, He saw the white-robbed priests performing their sacred services.  He saw the bleeding lamb on the altar.  With the other worshippers, He bowed in prayer while the cloud of incense rose up to God.

     Every day, He witnessed the services and rituals and saw their meaning more clearly.  Soon He could see His own life in every act and symbol.  As new thoughts raced through His mind, the mystery of His mission became clearer.  Jesus needed time to be alone.  When the services were over, He stayed in the temple courts. 

     As the worshippers left the temple and the city, Jesus was left behind.
