Top  Previous  Next

10.5 Jesus entered the temple,1 expelled buyers and sellers, overturned money-changers tables and the chairs of the dove sellers. He didnt allow any goods to be removed. He told them, “It is written, My house will be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a robbers den.

Daily he taught in the temple, while chief priests, scribes and leaders planned to destroy him. They couldnt, for they feared the people who hung in wonder on his words, listening most attentively.
