Expulsion of the Money-changers

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, who feared he was about to lead a rebellion against Roman rule.
