    Unlimited: The Den Of Robbers | Good News Unlimited

    Jesus entered Jerusalem, where he spent his final week teaching in the courts of the temple. But first there’s something he had to do something. The Gospel of John records that the first public act of Jesus’ ministry was his cleansing of the temple at Passover. The Gospel of Mark tells us that Jesus ended his ministry in the same way. After having ridden into Jerusalem on a colt the previous day, Jesus cleansed the temple courts and it was exactly what the Jewish people would have expected the Messiah to do. They considered that the temple was defiled and that when the Messiah came, one of the key things that he would do would be to cleanse and restore the temple. Jesus did this as a very clear sign of his absolute authority as the Messiah whom they had been expecting.
