Expulsion of the Money-Changers

VIA| After his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, Jesus went to the great Temple of Jerusalem and attacked the stalls of the money-changers and merchants who did business in the Court of the Gentiles.

His action frightened the Temple authorities (order followers), who feared he was about to lead a rebellion against Rome rule.
