comment What is Jesus' purpose in asking about Psalm 110?
Ha! Can't imagine why you asked this question today? 😊. A solid question though. I like that. +1

comment Why did Jesus “cleanse” the temple?
True! But you need to look at all the details - the way in which John describes the New Jerusalem. Note the strong comparisons between Ezekiel 40 and Revelation 21. Both are taken up to a high mountain and shown there respective cities (note Ezekiel 40:2) and they see a man (Angel in John) given a measuring rod to measure the walls. Both Ezekiel temple and the new Jerusalem have a river of live flowing from it. The list goes on.

@Tau - Good question! I don't have a definite answer. But I do find it interesting that the NT book of Revelation presents Ezekiel's temple as the new city of Jerusalem. I interpret the new Jerusalem in Revelation as a symbolic vision of the saints relationship with God. I think Ezekiel's temple is symbolic as well.

comment Why did Judas betray Jesus WITH A KISS?
Why would Judas need to act like a friend? The kiss isn't a ruse. According to John, Judas brought a cohort of soldiers (600 men) and Jesus instantly recognizes the action for what it is. All that the gospels say is that the kiss was a signal to identify Jesus to the arresting soldiers. And that clearly did not require an act of friendship. The kiss is ironic/sarcastic. Very much in line with the irony in crucifixion. Judas is mocking Jesus. The question is why is he mocking him? The answer is found in Jesus' claim to be the Christ and the expected coronation of Jesus in Jerusalem.
