Jesus is zealous for His Father’s House. He will not have His Father’s House profaned in any way.
The “money” is symbolic of the “false gods” of this world. The Temple is symbolic of Jesus own body.
“Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
Then in conclusion there is mention of faith based on signs.
This is not the type of faith recommended for members of John’s communities and it will most likely let you down in the face of persecution.
Read the text and take time to ponder.
Destroy this Temple and I will raise it up!
