Jesus went to the temple in Jerusalem.
Everyone was preparing for the passover festival. Pilgrims were buying coins as offerings. Others were buying animals to be sacrificed.
Jesus watched and grew angry. He grabbed a rope and made a knot at the end. He went from stall to stall telling them to leave.
He tipped over the tables.
He shouted at each to leave.
buying and selling has nothing to do with worshipping God. The temple is a house of prayer. You are making it a den of thieves.
