John and Mark/Leprosy and Temple

There is a striking parallel between the cleansing of the leper in Mark 1:40-45 and Jesus’ cleansing of the temple in John 2:13-22. The temple has become a house of leprosy. It is unclean. Unlike the leper in Mark who implored to be cleansed, the temple continually desecrates the house of the Lord. In one case, Jesus acts with compassion, on the other, Jesus beats the temple (John 2:15).
