Then Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out the merchants from their stalls.
He told them, "The Scriptures declare, 'My Temple will be a place of prayer,' but you have turned it into a den of thieves." a47
After that, he taught daily in the Temple, but the leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the other leaders of the people began planning how to kill him.
But they could think of nothing, because all the people hung on every word he said.
