John 2:13-22

13 The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.14In the temple he found people selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and the money-changers seated at their tables. 15Making a whip of cords, he drove all of them out of the temple, both the sheep and the cattle. He also poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. 16He told those who were selling the doves, ‘Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father’s house a market-place!’ 17His disciples remembered that it was written, ‘Zeal for your house will consume me.’18The Jews then said to him, ‘What sign can you show us for doing this?’19Jesus answered them, ‘Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’ 20The Jews then said, ‘This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?’21But he was speaking of the temple of his body. 22After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

So far this year, 146 people have been shot and killed by police. One of those men was 28 year old Shaleem Tindle. Body cam footage contradicts the police officers report that Tindle was “clearly armed.” Rather, it shows Tindle raising his hands into the air, before being shot in the back three times. This, of course, is not an isolated incident. We have been inundated with similar videos for the last decade, and aware of this reality long before cell phones possessed the ability to record video footage. Black Lives Matter has led a national movement demanding action. The federal government has launched expensive and lengthy investigations into police departments all over the country, uncovering time and time again, racist and brutal practices. All of this — and yet we — who demand justice and equity for all — continue to loose in the courts and in the halls of power. Why? Why are we loosing friends? In order to try and answer this question I’ve got to tell you two stories. I’ll warn you in advance, neither comes from the Bible, though we’ll get there eventually. But, before we do lets begin with the Supreme Court decision of Tennessee v. Garner. Here’s what we know: On the night of October 3, 1974, 15-year-old Edward Garner, an unarmed 110- pound African-American 8th-grader in Memphis, Tennessee, was believed to have stolen a wallet containing $10 from a nearby home. When Memphis Police Officer Elton Hymon saw Edward climbing a fence to get away, the officer shot Edward in the head and killed him. He had no reason to believe Edward had a gun. The officer didn't see a gun.

Mark 9:2-9

2 Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 3and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one* on earth could bleach them. 4And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. 5Then Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings,* one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.’ 6He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. 7Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved;* listen to him!’ 8Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus.

9 As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
