  1. The problem with Jesus was that when He entered the city through the Eastern Gate, instead of turning right to go into the Roman Garrison and clear them out, He turned left to the Temple and cleared them out! It didn’t particularly agree with their eschatology. God has a habit of doing those things. 🙂

  2. Jesus knew what he was saying. Whose den had the temple become? It had become the den of the religious leaders. The Greek word for ‘robbers’ here means violent criminals, and it was violence that the religious leaders were plotting. Jesus himself had said to them, ‘You destroy this temple (meaning his body) and I will raise it up in three days.’ They were so to fulfil their part in this prediction, and Jesus certainly fulfilled his part.
