Jesus spoke the words for those who would believe in Him.  Because it was Passover, they would be repeated to thousands of people and carried to all parts of the world.  After He rose from the dead, all those people would understand what He had meant and their faith would grow.  To many, these words would prove that He was the Son of God. 

His words also referred to the temple and to the services held in it.  Those sacrifices and services were symbols of Jesus and His sacrifice to save the world.  When Jesus was killed, the meaning and purpose of the temple and its rituals were destroyed.  The Jewish leaders did destroy the temple, by having Jesus put to death.
