What was Jesus talking about when He said that He was rebuild the temple in three days?

Jesus makes a curious statement to the temple merchants early in His ministry after He is questioned about clearing the temple.  It is a response to people asking Him for a sign for His authority to do what He just did.  His answer seems cryptic at first glance, but He answers them with an answer they will not understand for another three years.  It is also a statement that will come back to haunt Him later because they use His answer to accuse Him of heresy in His trial. What did He say and why was it held agains Him?

In this Sermon

We are going to take a look at Jesus’ statement in John chapter 2 and see how it all points towards His resurrection.
