When I shared images suggesting that Jesus might have been a liberal Jew or Jewish liberal, it generated interesting discussion. So I thought I would share these and see what people think of them:
Be that as it may, Jesus certainly was not the first to engage in a prophetic critique of profit-making. And indeed, it is debated whether the so-called “temple tantrum” was about protesting making money off of pilgrims, or a symbolic act portending the temple's destruction, or something else.
What do you think Jesus' act of driving moneychangers and sellers of animals out of the temple was intended to achieve or convey?
