Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out
the merchants and their customers.
He knocked over the tables of the money changers
and the stalls of those selling doves.
and stopped everyone from bringing in merchandise.
Jesus taught them,
"The Scriptures say,
'My Temple will be called a place of prayer,
but you have turned it into a den of thieves!"
When the leading priests and teachers of law heard
what Jesus had done,
they began planning how to kill him.
