A commotion at the entrance of the Court drew our attention in that direction. A man came through the throngs of pilgrims and sellers and turned over the money changers’ tables.
“Look at that. He’s doing it again,” Abraham said.
Yeshua headed toward the dove sellers turning over their seats. They proceeded to gather the carts of doves and head out of the Court, just as I had done the first time he came to condemn the merchants in the Court.
“They do what he says,” Abraham said. “He did not bother to release the birds or disturb the creatures. The sellers must fear that he would. No one is preventing Him from causing such a disruption. Where are the temple guards? It is as if He is totally in charge.”
“Oh but He is! This is the house of His Father. Yeshua is the Messiah,” Simon said.
“He said it himself in the Portico of Solomon. He is the Son of God and they are one,” I said in agreement.
Yeshua came closer. He paused in front of us and shouted:
“Is it not written: ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. But you have made it a den of thieves’.”
